There is a large fully opening door which allows you access. The Sussex Run has also been fitted with a higher grade type of wire mesh. In fact, the heavy duty wire mesh is 50% thicker than many of the other online suppliers.

Hen run Our chicken run wire is thicker

This increase in quality and thickness makes the run more sturdy. The heavy duty wire has also been set into the wooden framework which adds to the rigidity of the entire run structure.

Maintenance

Our wooden coops and runs are treated with a base coat of wood preservative.The wood we use in this product is a highly durable and scented softwood which is noted for its resistance to decay and rot.

As with all outdoor wooden structures we strongly recommend that you treat your coop with a high quality varnish or wood preservative before exposing it to the elements and that you re-treat it at least once a year (preferably before the winter season) to maintain the applied preservative and water repellent properties. There are many popular products available with Cuprinol, Ronseal and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.

We also recommend that you try and position your chicken coop in a protected area which is not overly exposed to high winds and the elements.

Delivery Options

There are two delivery options available at checkout.

Standard (£12.95): Orders are usually dispatched 3 to 5 working days after an order is placed.
Express (£17.95): Orders are usually dispatched the next working day.

Most orders are usually delivered in 1 to 2* working days after they have been dispatched. Deliveries are typically made Monday to Friday between 8.00am - 6.30pm. (Working days are Monday to Friday but don't include public holidays.)

If you need your order urgently then choose the express delivery option for priority dispatch.

Where can we deliver to?

Orders can be delivered anywhere in mainland England, Wales and some areas in the Scottish lowlands. If you live outside these areas we unfortunately cannot deliver our products to you.

Like most online compaies we rely on (3rd party) courier companies to deliver all our orders. As much as we would love to get our products in the hands of as many people as possible the cost of getting our coops to anyone who lives outside mainland England and Wales is prohibitive - upwards of £70.

If you live outside these regions you are welcome to arrange collection from us using a company like Parcel Force or Parcel Monkey.

Delivery to Scottish Postcodes

Scottish postcodes that we can deliver to include:

Scottish Lowlands (e.g. Glasgow/Edinburgh and surrounds) and (Zone 2) -All AB, IV, KW1-14, PA34, PA37-39, PH19-41, PH49-50

Unfortunatly we cannot deliver to Scottish post codes not included above. This is due to the size of our products and the very high costs (£60 - £120+) levied by the courier company we use.

You are welcome to arrange your own courier to collect from us however. Here is a list of couriers that may help.

Delivery to Isle of Wight

The courier company that we use can deliver to the Isle of Wight. However there is a delivery surcharge of £15.95 per order. Please contact us if you live in the Isle of Wight before you place your order so we can send you a special link to place your order.

Delivery Questions

Damaged, Faulty or Missing Items

*This is an estimate based on the majority of orders sent, however we cannot absolutely guarantee it.

1. Can I join a single Sussex Run onto the one I already have?

Yes, you can join as many runs together to form as long a run as you like. It's just a matter of leaving off the square end panel on the run that is joining the one in front. The Sussex Run comes with all the necessary screws and instructions to do this. It quite straight forward.

2. How does the run attach to the coop?

Special brackets are supplied to secure it to the coop but you can just leave it pushed up against it if it safe to do so. Some customers use these hook and eye latches which allow you to secure the run to your coop for security and then simply unhook the run if every you need to move it.

3. Is the wood treated?

Yes, the Sussex Run comes with a base coat treatment of wood preservative

But as with all outdoor wooden structures in our harsh climate, we recommend that the timber be treated on a regular basis to ensure a long life. There are many popular products available with CuprinolRonseal and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands. A lot of customers use and recommend these: Brand Option 1 or Brand Option 2

4. How do I purchase a Double Sussex Run?

The double Sussex Run is simply two single runs joined together with the end panel of one of the runs left off. If you wish to purchase the Double you just need to order 2 x single Sussex Runs.

5. Is the Sussex Run fox-proof?

We would like to think that our coops and runs are made to a higher standard than most other suppliers in this price range. While we have purposely used thicker, sturdier wood, wire and locks with the aim to make it as safe and secure as possible for your chickens we cannot absolutely guarantee that foxes and other predators won’t try and target them.

Foxes are by far the biggest threat that your pets will face so if you are going to keep your chickens then we also urge you to take these added precautions especially if you know you have foxes in your area.
