With over 22 square feet of run space and over
9.5 square feet of inside housing area as well, the Devon
with double run is ideal for those that wish to give their
hens a large outside area for them to roam freely.
What will really impress you from the moment you open the
box is how well it has been constructed, with plenty of attention
to detail not found with similar online 'knock-offs'.
This traditional hen house has been lovingly
crafted from scented softwood and is able to comfortably house
up to 6 to 7 medium sized chickens.
A large nesting box (which can be assembled
on either side of the house) allows you to easily collect
your eggs in a matter of minutes without disturbing your flock.
This can be securely locked thanks to the 2
heavy duty stainless steal latches which are supplied with
The nesting box can also be easily unbolted
from the side of the house should you need to gain access
The large nesting box also has 3 cosy areas
which will allow your hens the perfect place to lay, ensuring
that you are rewarded with a constant and fresh supply every
Inside you will also see that there are 3 separate
perches, properly designed and positioned high up allowing
plenty of roosting room for all your chickens.
Another great feature of the Devon model is
that it also comes with a vertically opening pop hole which
allows you to fit an automatic
You can also choose to have either the pop hole
positioned as the front or the sliding doors, which ever option
you find more practical or visually appealing.
The handy runs can be securely attached to the Devon hen
house using the screws supplied or simply pushed up flush
against it if you prefer a less permanent run area for your
The two large lockable doors on each side of the run (four
doors in total) gives you easy access should you wish to change
your chickens' water or top up a feeder with food.
You can also choose to join the two runs together to make
one extra long run like the image below.
You can also easily add more runs to extend
your setup at a later stage if needed.
"I have built it and it is of high
I'm very happy to give feedback.
If there was a gold medal for customer service then this company
would win it! The response to my emails was almost instant,
with lots of helpful advice. Nothing was too much trouble
and my chicken coop was delivered on the day expected. I have
built it and it is of high quality. I haven't put the run
up yet, but I'm sure it will just as good quality. Kind regards
"The coop and run are extremely
well made and easy to put together"
I recently purchased the Devon
coop with double run (and have just ordered a third run) from
your company. I would like to say that the service was brilliant
- prompt emails to answer my queries and also you kept me
up to date with delivery dates etc. The Coop and run are extremely
well made and easy to put together - I did it on my own with
no help from hubby!!!! I got my first ever chickens - 3 beautiful
girls - on Sunday and they seem to love their new home. More
than satisfied with the service and products and would not
hesitate to recommend you to others. Thank you!!
"It arrived very quickly and was
easy to assemble on my own"
I am delighted with my chicken
coop. It arrived very quickly and was easy to assemble on
my own. I am just wishing that I had ordered the double run
option. I will probably order another run to add on soon.
The information on chicken health, breeds etc was a nice extra.
I would certainly recommend your company to other people.
"I am 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. Highly recommended.
"Very good value for money"
I don't normally respond to
questionnaires, however I have found dealing with chickencoops
direct a very good experience with excellent supporting information
for the new chicken owner, the build quality was also very
good and very good value for money.I would recommend you to
"Good quality and the design well
I found the whole experience
very easy from ordering right through to construction. My
order arrived within a couple of days with no problems. Both
the coop and the runs were very easy to put up and the materials
supplied were of a good quality and the design well thought
out. I am sure my bantams will enjoy there new home. The leaflets
are also a nice touch and provide some very useful information.
"It makes such a change to find
a company who does what they say they will"
Your communication at every
stage of the process (by email) was excellent. It was delivered
on time, exactly when you said it would be, and less than
48 hours after placing the order with you. It was well packed,
no damages or shortages,with clear construction instructions.
The coop is well thought out and beautifully made. I have
already given your web address to a friend who is thinking
about getting a few chickens. It makes such a change to find
a company who does what they say they will, and one where
they are genuinely interested in the customer and getting
it right. Thank you once again.
1.How many hens can the Devon with Double
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 Double Run then we would suggest that you look to
keep up to 4 medium sized hens or 5 bantams.
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 with Double 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. 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. How easily can the Devon & Double
Run be moved?
It's not difficult but you will
need an extra pair of hands.
If you have a Devon
with Run or Devon
with Double Run and want to move your coop then the answer
would be to first dis-connect the runs from the coop and move
each section separately.
If you want to do this on a
regular basis then it's best not to permantly secure the run
to the hen house with the screws supplied. Instead you could
choose to simply position the run up against the hen house
or if you want a bit more security then use
a hook and eye type latch like this and secure the hook
to the side of the Hen House and the eye to the side of the
run. That way you can simply unlatch the run from the coop
whenever you need to move it.
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.
