- "It is perfect for my needs
and provides a decent sized living space."
Here is my feedback on the
Sussex Coop. I purchased two coops one for myself and one
for my daughters care home. The one at the care home is not
yet set up but I am convinced will bring great joy to the
young adults who live there once they get their chickens.
I brought mine as a bit of an extravagance. I already have
a larger coop but felt that my three bantams were being a
little bullied by the 7 regular sized chickens. Therefore
I decided to buy another coop and found yours on the web site
after doing a google search.
It is perfect for my needs and
provides a decent sized living space. As with my other coop
one of the prime reasons for buying this particular model
is that they can get up in the morning and roam about in the
'run' whether I have actually got out of bed and let them
out or not!! They then wait for myself or one of the farm
hands to open the run and let them out into the grass area
where they can spend a happy day scratching around before
going back to bed. I was impressed when it was put together
by he amount of doors and the easy access to various parts
of the coop and after the 1st night everyone seems happy
- "The coop was well manufactured
and i am well pleased with it."
I am very impressed by the
first class service I received from all at ChickenCoopsdirect.
When I took delvery of the cop I found the directions to put
it together very easy to follow and beleive the coop was well
manufactured and i am well pleased with it. Already I have
had plotholders on my allotment admiring it and I have no
hesitation in recomending your company.
- "We bought the Sussex coop
for Mum's birthday present and she loves it!"
We have been very pleased with
chicken coops direct and would definitely recommend your company.
We bought the Sussex coop for Mum's birthday present and she
loves it! We were very impressed with how easy it was to assemble.
Also, specifying a delivery day, and delivering to my brother's
house, did not pose a problem to you at all. We have just
bought 2 hens and they have settled in very quickly - now
they have got used to the ramp up to the house, they keep
going in and out of it all day and peering out of the window
at us! Hopefully it won't be long before they give us some
eggs.We were very grateful for your guidance on keeping and
selecting hens, as we're relatively new to keeping hens, and
it saved a lot of time searching for the information on the
internet. It was really good to be able to look at which breeds
would be happy to be kept in a pen, and which ones needed
to be more free range.Thank you for your excellent service!
I'm sure we'll get many years of pleasure out of the coop,
and our new hens!
- "A sturdy coop, well-made
which also looks good."
Ordered a Sussex coop late
Wednesday afternoon via email and it was delivered first thing
Friday morning by City Link - most impressed by that (especially
with the delivery driver placing the three packages where
I wanted them). After checking all parts were there I decided
to give it a coat of preservative before I put it together
(which I would recommend doing). Took me just under an hour
to put it up with the help of two very excited grandchildren,
again, most impress with the outcome, a sturdy coop, well-made
which also looks good. It's now the home of three Warrens
(Poppy, Mama and Gabriella -- named by the grandkids - not
me!!) who have settled in nicely. Would I recommend Chicken
Coops Direct - Most Certainly - you do what it says on the

Thank you so much for all you
patience with me when ordering the Sussex chicken house. I
am over the moon, it looks fantastic ! It was delivery very
promptly, when you said, and it took me and my husband 35mins
to put together from start to finish, with the help of a cordless
screwdriver I might add. The instructions were so easy and
clear. Well done to you both and once again thanks for all
you help. You have taken away my fear of ordering over the
- "The coop is perfect, instructions
for putting together were clear and we did it easily."
Thank you so much for all your
help with our Sussex Chicken Coop! A few hiccups with the
delivery company were swiftly sorted by yourselves and you
kept me fully informed at all times. The coop is perfect,
instructions for putting together were clear and we did it
easily within 50 mins. I bought this coop as it had an upstairs
which hopefully will make life difficult for the foxes :)
My four chickens are very happy in their new home!"
- "The older one which we
have had for a year still looks as good as the newer one."
Dear Maria, I am delighted
with my Sussex chicken coop. This is the second one I have
ordered from you. I ordered it on Sunday night and it arrived
on Tuesday on the Isle of Wight! Brilliant. I noticed that
you have fixed the one design defect I noticed from the first
one I bought and that is making the ladder removable so it's
easier to move to coop around. The coops look lovely in our
orchard. The older one which we have had for a year still
looks as good as the newer one and there is no sign of any
deterioration to the wood or roof.
We bought the second coop because
one of our hens is broody and is sitting on 6 eggs so we moved
the other 2 hens to the new coop which was very easy because
both coops are identical and they didn't notice! Thank you
so much and thank you for all the additional information you
sent about keeping chickens which is really useful.

particularly in our harsh weather conditions, we strongly
recommend that you treat your coop with a high quality wood
preservative prior to placing outdoors and that you re-treat
your hen house at least once a year (preferably before the
winter season) to maintain the applied preservative and water
