Rating:
99% of 100
A versatile, traditional chicken house with huge amounts of nesting & bedding space, suitable for up to 7 hens. The Devon is ideal for allotments and sites where your chickens can freely roam or it can be teamed up with our made to measure single or double bolt-on Devon runs for a fully contained space.

The Devon Hen House (as featured on Alan Titchmarsh's gardening show) is a fantastic looking chicken coop able to comfortably house 6 to 7 medium sized chickens.

What will really impress you from the moment you open the box is how well it is constructed, with plenty of attention to detail. This hen house is also our most versatile.

The front and back panels of the Devon are easily inter changeable.This means you can choose whether you want the sliding door entrance or the vertically opening door entrance to face the front.

This coop has a large nesting box

The large nesting box can also be assembled on either the left or right hand side of the hen house, again to suit your needs.

Devon hen house with tray open

The Devon hen house is one of the easiest to clean because it comes with a large fully removable metal tray which can be sprayed down and washed.

Devon coop with box detached

The nesting box can also be easily unbolted from the side of the house should you need to gain access for cleaning.

Devon coop nesting box

The large nesting box comes with 3 cosy areas which will allow all your hens the perfect place to lay, ensuring that you are rewarded with a constant and fresh supply every morning.

Chicken coop perches

Inside you will also see that there are 3 separate and removable perches, positioned high up inside the hen house and giving plenty of roosting room for all your chickens.

The Devon hen house is raised off the ground

Another great feature that this model has to offer is that it is raised off the ground which helps keep mud and dampness out of the hen house. Four rubber soles will also keep the wood from rotting.

You can also fit an automatic door opener to the vertically opening pop hole. This means that you can totally automate the process of letting your hens in and out of their coop in the mornings or evenings.

Devon with a lockable door

*The lastest version of the Devon Hen House now comes with a lockable solid sliding door. Other improvements include not 1 but 2 heavy duty nesting box latches for double the security against predators.

Nesting box from the outside

The Devon Hen House is one of our best selling hen houses and also one of the most affordable models. Its superb build quality and many handy features make it one of the best hen houses on the market in this price range.

Maintenance

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 , 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.

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. How many hens can the Devon hold?

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 birds inside as there is over 9sq feet of space but we feel up to 7 is a good number.

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.

3. Can I have the Devon with a verticle (pop-hole) door?

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 front.

4. Is the wood treated?

Yes, the Devon hen House 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 or more could not be expected.

There are many popular products available with Cuprinol, Ronseal and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.

A lot of customers use and recommend these: Brand Option 1 or Brand Option 2.

5. Can I use the Devon for keeping ducks?

While the product has been specifically designed to house chickens a few customers have pruchased the Devon for their ducks and the feedback has been positive.

6. Can I add a run at a later stage?

Yes, you can add runs at any stage. These can be joined onto the front or back of the coop and you can join as many runs together to form as long a space as you need. For more infor on the Devon Run by itself click here: Devon Runs

7. 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 chickens then we also urge you to take these added precautions, especially if you know that you have foxes in your area.
