at all tmes and want to give them more room to roam.
The Devon Hen House is one of our easiest coops
to clean thanks to a large fully removable pull out tray which
is deeper than most other models online, so it is able to
hold more bulky bedding material.
The large nesting box allows you to easily collect
your eggs in a matter of minutes without disturbing your flock.
It can also be easily unbolted from the side of the house

allow all your hens the perfect place to lay, ensuring that

perches, positioned high up inside the hen house and giving
plenty of roosting room for all your chickens.

inter changeable so you can choose whether you want the sliding
door entrance or the vertically opening door entrance (as

"This is an absolutely excellent
chicken house and run"
As the person who has had responsibility
for building the house and the run, I'd like to endorse Kate's
comments. I don't think that I have ever before come across
a product of this nature which has been so thoughtfully packaged
(in the sense of different sized screws being sent in different
bags, etc) and which has fitted together so well.
This is an absolutely excellent chicken house and run, dead
easy to assemble, and your customer service has been outstanding.
An absolute pleasure to buy from - we will recommend you.
"Chicken Coops Direct ranks at
Apart from a glitch with the
website at first, the whole experience of ordering, paying
and delivery within 2 days was an absolute mail-order dream!!
Brian and I order a whole raft of products for ourselves and
our 2 elderly mothers, online and we do certainly experience
some difficult companies to deal with but Chicken Coops Direct
ranks at 100% good. Thanks to Tony, Mike and Maria.
Our daughter will be in the market shortly looking for some
chooks/housing, so guess where we shall direct her?
"Absolutely delighted with the
quality of the product"
Having recently purchased the
Devon hen house and run from Chickencoopsdirect I am absolutely
delighted with the quality of the product. I'm a newcomer
to keeping chickens and this for me is the perfect hen house
for my garden. Not only does it look good but more importantly
my 3 new Chickens have made themselves at home straight away.
They have the space and comfort they need in a compact, practical
and robustly designed house.
The service received from Chickencoopsdirect is second to
none. Sound advice and a faultless, prompt delivery service.
"They would be crazy to go anywhere
I ordered the Devon Coop &
Run which was delivered without a hitch. It was left exactly
as per the delivery instructions....faultless. It was simple
to erect on my own with my wife er... shall we say supervising,
and it only took about 40 minutes. Thank you so much for the
follow up information which is and I'm sure will continue
to be very helpful. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing
with a modern company with old fashioned values. If anyone
is unsure which company to purchase their Chicken Coop from
they would be crazy to go anywhere else. Once again many thanks
from us both. Kindest Regards. Mark & Al.
"Putting the coop together was
very easy and took little time."
Everything has gone well. The
delivery was quick and with no damage. Putting the coop together
was very easy and took little time. Overall experience has
been very positive and would certainly recommend your company
to other potential clients.
"A small company who make an effort
on an individual basis"
I haven't actually set the
coop itself up yet, waiting for the weekend. I'll wait until
I've assembled it. However, I'm happy to say that I've found
the purchasing and delivery process very good. The website
is clear, ordering has gone without a hitch and delivery was
fine. I'd also note that it's really pleasant to have the
level of customer care I've had from the company.
It is evident that one is not dealing with a monster like
Amazon, but a small company who make an effort on an individual
"I am really pleased"
I appreciate the value of feedback
and genuine testimonials to small businesses in a competitive
market - so here goes:
'Chicken Coop Direct's website contained all the information
needed to make an informed choice - and contained valuable
images of their product range. What's more, the product delivered
was just as advertised 'on the tin' and competitively priced.
I was particularly impressed by the customer friendly assistance
given when a problem arose with my initial attempt with a
The personal contacts made to inform me of a short delay
in delivery time - and a reassurance that the coop ordered
had been dispatched - were much appreciated. I also was surprised
and grateful to receive from Chicken Coops Direct two follow-up
e-mail messages. The first offered very useful advice on the
different breeds of chickens to assist in making an informed
choice of birds - and the second on how to keep the birds
in a happy and healthy condition. Well done Chicken Coops
1.How many hens can the Devon & Run
It really will depend on the breed of chicken and the size
of the breed and how you intend to keep them.
The raised roosting and nesting area of the Devon
Hen House will hold 6 to 7 medium sized birds quite comfortably.
(Some customers do keep more but we feel 6 to 7 hens is optimal.)
What is probably more important to consider is the amount
of space they will have during the day.
If you intend to give them time to roam around your garden
then the run space is less of a determining factor and 6 to
7 hens would be perfectly fine.
However if they are to spend their entire day inside the
with Run then personally I'd think 2 maybe 3 medium sized
hens would be the amount to keep.
If you are thinking about investing in the Devon
with Double Run then you can increase that number to 4
medium sized hens or bantams and they would be fine.
The benefit of all our coops is that the run can be easily
extended at a later date should the need arise and in theory
you can add as many run
extensions as you need.
On a side note, we always recommend that whatever your circumstance
and set up that you try and give your hens a few hours outside
their coop and run in the late afternoon and early evening.
2.Can I fit an Automatic Door Opener
to this coop?
Yes, the Devon Hen House has
be specifically designed so it can be fitted with an automatic
door opener. We use and recommend this
door opener kit which comes with a door opener and a few
extra's that you'll need for the Devon with Run.
3.Can I have the Devon with a verticle
The Devon comes with both a
verticle opening (pop-door) and a sliding door. There are
two 'front' panels. One has the sliding door and the other
the pop hole door. You can choose to face either one in the
4.Is the wood treated?
Yes, the Devon and Run comes with a base coat treatment of
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. If the coop is treated to begin with
and thereafter on a yearly basis, and is well looked after
and cleaned regularly there is no reason why a lifespan of
5 to 7 years could not be expected.
There are many popular products available with Cuprinol
and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.
A lot of customers use and recommend these: Brand

5. Can I use the Devon & Run for
While the product has been
specifically designed to house chickens a few customers have
pruchased the Devon With Run for their rabbits or ducks and
the feedback has been positive.
We also make and sell wide range
of well made rabbit hutches and runs: Visit our website: www.Rabbit-Hutches.co.uk
6. Is the Devon fox proof?
We would like to think that our coops 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.

Our wooden coops 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
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.
