Some Essential Chicken Keeping Information
- A healthy hen will usually lay 1 egg per day, but this can vary depending on seasonality, feed and other factors. For best results, aim to keep 1 or 2 more chickens than the number of daily eggs you want (so for 4 eggs per day, keep 5 hens).
- Chickens need a secure place to sleep at night, and somewhere to lay their eggs. This is why all of our coops come with an attached, carefully designed nesting box featuring robust clasps, locks & hinges.
- To produce great eggs your chickens need to be kept happy and healthy. Ideally they need as much freedom to move as possible so it’s best if you let them out during the day, either free roaming, in a run or in a pen.
- Chickens are vulnerable to attack from foxes and other predators, so we've designed our coops to be as fox-proof as possible. Also, we’ve designed optional bolt-on runs for each of our coops so that you can give your chickens a safe place to move around (see below for single run and double run setups).
- 3 hens = 1-3 eggs per day
- 4 hens = 2-4 eggs per day
- 5 hens = 3-5 eggs per day
- 6 hens = 4-6 eggs per day
- 7 hens = 5-7 eggs per day
This is where your hens
will keep cosy and
lay their eggs

This setup is perfect for areas where space is at a premium but you still want to give your hens plenty of room to move around.
Style #2 Devon Coop & RunThe Devon works really well with this run (and even better with the double run). As with all our runs, the Devon run is designed to fit the coop exactly. It can either be screwed on or pushed alongside to give your hens around 11 square feet of outdoor space.
Style #3 Dorset Coop & RunThe well thought out Dorset chicken coop with run offers you plenty of flexibility with almost 30 square feet of space and a large run that can be easily extended at a later date should the need arise. This coop is easy to clean thanks to it’s easy-access front panel and roof.
Style #4 Kent Coop & RunThe Kent is our most affordable chicken coop yet is made from the same pre-treated durable wood that we use in our other popular chicken houses. With over 6 square feet of internal space this coop provides enough room for up to 4 medium sized hens.

Bought a Kent Coop & Run
Would definitely order from Chicken Coops Direct again.
“The service from yourselves has been excellent. Loads of useful information given on chickens too. The Devon Coop and Runs are lovely, as described and I think a really good price. So easy to put together I could have done it myself which is really saying something. The runs are great as can be left unattached and have lots of doors for access. Also light to move. Would definitely order from ChickenCoopsDirect again.”

The service received ... has been really, really good.
“The Sussex Coop is excellent quality and easy to build. We were told our hens would take a few days to settle before they would start laying - I collected my hens yesterday afternoon and this morning got an egg! So the hens are obviously happy in their new home. The service received from Chicken Coops Direct both before and after delivery has been really, really good and very helpful - much more than I was expecting.”
