This run (designed to fit both the Kent
Coop and Dorset
Coop) is made from the same high quality wood that we
use in all our coops. At 137.5 cm in length and 82.5 cm wide
the run gives your hens over 11 square feet of run space.
The versatile run has two large doors on either side making
it easier to access the internal area from any side - whichever
is more convenient for you at the time.
Each door has strong locks positioned in the middle of the
door frame. This added safety feature is there to prevent
a persistent fox or aggressive dog from pushing in on the
door to gain access.
Accessing all areas of the run is an important
feature we wanted to have so we added a large lift up roof
which can be folded back giving you easy access to the end
of the run.
The large folding roof panel can be securely
closed when it is not in use thanks to a heavy duty metal
The chicken 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.
This increase in quality and thickness gives
you peace of mind in knowing that this is a more fox proof
run. The heavy duty wire has also been set into the wooden
framework which adds to the rigidity of the run structure.
We have designed the Kent and Dorset Run in
such a way so that it is now possible to attach two, three
or even four units together to create one extra long run.
Two large double lockable doors - easily access the run from
any side, great for a quick water change.
It can be attached to your coop with screws or pushed up
against it - this lets you decide if you want a permanent
run or one that you can move.
High quality woodwork with strong
joints and screws - means that this hen run won't fall apart
if you move it around.
Easy assemble instructions - all you need is 10 to 15
minutes of your time.
Comes flat packed in one easy-to-lift
1.Can I join a single Kent/Dorset 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
Kent and Dorset 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?
Screws 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 Kent and Dorset 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
and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands. A lot of customers
use and recommend these: Brand
Option 1 or Brand
4. How do I purchase a Double Kent/Dorset
The double Kent or Dorset 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 Kent & Dorset Runs.
5. Is the Kent and Dorset 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.

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
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.
