Devon Hen House & Run

Rating:
99% of 100
The Devon works really well with this run which has been specifically designed to fit the coop exactly. The add-on run gives your hens 11 square feet of secure outdoor space. You can also easily extend the run by adding a 2nd or 3rd one onto it at a later stage.

The versatile and feature rich Devon Hen House With Run allows your hens a secure area outside their coop as well as giving you total control of your flock if and when you need it.

With over 9 square feet of internal space the Devon Hen House itself is able to house up to 6 to 7 medium sized chickens quite comfortably.

The 11 square ft run can be fixed permanently to the front or back of the coop or simply pushed up against it. You can also easily extend your run at any stage should you want to keep your hens inside a run at all times or just wish to give them a bit more room to roam.

Hen house for 5-6 chickens

The Devon Hen House is one of our easiest coops to clean thanks to a large fully removable pull-out tray which is deeper than most other models online, so it is able to hold more bulky bedding material.

The large nesting box allows you to easily collect your eggs in a matter of minutes without disturbing your flock. It can also be easily unbolted from the side of the house to give you more access to the interior of the hen house for cleaning.

Inside the 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.

This coop features three hen 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.

How many hens can the Devon with Run hold?

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 Devon with Run then we feel that 2 medium sized hens or three Bantams would be the amount to keep. If you are thinking about investing in the Devon with Double Run then you can increase that number to 4 medium sized hens or up to 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.

 

Wood & General Maintenance

The wood we use in this product is a highly durable and scented softwood which is noted for its resistance to decay and rot. Our wooden coops are treated with a base coat of wood preservative but as with all outdoor wooden structures, we recommend that you treat your coop with a high-quality varnish or wood preservative once a year (preferably before the winter season) to maintain the applied preservative and water repellent properties. We also highly recommend that you try and position your chicken coop in a protected area which is not overly exposed to high winds and the elements.

Where can we deliver to?

Orders can be delivered anywhere in mainland England, Wales and most areas in Scotland. If you live outside these areas we, unfortunately, cannot deliver our products to you. This includes the Channel Islands and Northern Ireland (IM , GY, JE, BT)

Like most online companies we rely on (3rd party) courier companies to deliver all our orders around the country. 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 - sometimes more than the actual cost of the product! If you do live outside these regions you are welcome to arrange collection from us using a courier company of your choice.

 

Delivery to Scottish Postcodes

We can deliver to most areas in Scotland. The express delivery option may not be available though for some addresses in the far north.

Unfortunately, we are unable to deliver to the following Scottish post codes due to the size of our products and the very high costs levied by the courier companies we use.

HS , ZE , IV40 - IV56, PA20 -80, PH41 - 44, KW15 -17

You are welcome to arrange your own courier to collect from us, however. Here is a list of couriers that may help.

 

Delivery to the 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. 


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 are 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 been 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 is 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 purchased 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 space as you need. For more info 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.
