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

Hen House

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 versitle.

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.

Hen House

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.

Hen House

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.

Wooden Hen Houses

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

Hen House for sale

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.

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.

Quality Hen Houses

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.

*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 preditors.

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

"This one ticked all the boxes"

I would highly recommend Chicken Coops Direct. We had been searching for a coop and this one ticked all the boxes “quality & cost”. Easy to order and excellent service. Delivered on time and easy to erect. Just what we wanted now with 4 happy chickens whom are now giving fresh eggs. One happy customer. Thanks Kevin Moran

"Easy to assemble, very fast delivery and excellent after sales support"

Fantastic service! Wonderful coop ( and we looked at a few), easy to assemble, very fast delivery and excellent after sales support with useful factsheet emails. Extremely friendly staff and nothing is too much trouble. I would definitely recommend ChickenCoopsDirect; we're novice chicken keepers and they've made everything very easy, and value for money. Thank you!

"The coop is well thought out, well made"

I would be happy to recommend your company wholeheartedly, not something I have ever said before! The coop is well thought out, well made, and fitted together without any problems, and my four ex-battery hens which arrived 2 days ago seem to have settled in immediately and have already laid in the nest-boxes. I was really impressed too with the communications before it was delivered, real emails from real people actually answering my questions, and I like the helpful booklets sent out since with information on chicken health etc. All in all a pleasant experience dealing with you and extremely good value!

"I wish all of mail order items arrived in just two days"

My chicken coup has now been up and running for about 6 weeks and I have three chickens who love it. It was very easy to put together (me and my mother-in-law managed it without any help from the men), and the chickens love it. Really happy with the service you provided, I wish all of mail order items arrived in just two days and we are really happy with the product, I think it will last a long while to come with a little annual maintenance. I am more than happy to recommend your services.

Chicken Coup Review

"I would have no reesevations about ordering one of their coops again"

Found Chicken Coops Direct to be very helpful and very efficient, I was very pleased with the coop which was made from good materials and the plans were very easy to read and the coop easy to erect. Their follow up was very good and they supplied me with useful bits of information on how to choose and look after chickens. I would have no resevations about ordering one of their coops again.

"I was so impressed with Chicken Coops Direct."

I'm not the sort who ever leaves feedback because I haven't got time (three children and now 3 chickens too!) but I am going to this time because I was so impressed with Chicken Coops direct. I ordered late Sunday evening and the coop arrived first thing Tuesday: that's Dorset to Harrogate! I also had the wrong address on my paypal account and had to change it and that went all smoothly too! So very, very highly receommended!

"The service from you was excellent"

Just to let you know we are very pleased with the chicken coop, it is of good quality and easy & enjoyable to assemble, I varnished it well before assembly. The service from you was excellent starting with receipt of the order to letting us know it was on the way and the very swift delivery. We got five battery chickens, a motley crew but they have settled well in there deluxe home and are really enjoying their new found freedom, we are looking forward to seeing them as healthy chickens should look. They are also enjoying the food, we got the starter pack which was very useful. Thank you again for all the help you gave.

Chicken Houses Runs Review

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

Measurements & Maintenance

All our coops use 12mm T&G supported by strong 35mm x 25mm framework.

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.
