The Boughton uses less space than other traditional arks because the sleeping area is located directly over the run. This design also means the chickens are protected from the sun and rain.

The house has an easy to use, hinged ladder which may be drawn up from outside to secure the birds at night.

The nesting box is located at the end of the chicken ark and has an external egg collecting door. It is very easy for children to use – so they can run down in the morning to collect the eggs.

Free Range Run Door

You can access all areas of the run using the handy doors at each end. This makes it very easy to catch a chicken, let them out of the run, or top up the feeders and drinkers.

Many wooden chicken coops are made from low-grade Chinese softwood, but not The Boughton. This chicken coop is made from durable Whitewood Picea Abies, a strong and sustainably-farmed Norwegian Spruce. The plastic latches and metal fixings complete this high quality wooden chicken coop.

All the sections we use are planed all round so there are no scruffy faces or splinters, so the wood is ready for you to paint as soon as it arrives.

Forsham Timber.

The Forsham Cottage Arks Boughton Chicken Ark is designed for up to six medium sized chickens. As they require additional head height in the nesting area, the Boughton is not recommended for larger breeds such as Buff Orpingtons or Cochins.
