Kent Coop & Double Run
The main feature of this chicken coop is the long (23 square foot) run that ensures your chickens have plenty of free range access whilst at the same time keeping the rest of your garden chicken free.
Access is not a problem as we have included 5 doors on the extra long run. Two on either side and one in the roof.
We have worked hard to source a higher grade wire that is 50% thicker than most online suppliers ensuring that your hens will be safer and more secure.
The wood is sourced especially for its strength and resistance to rot. The joints are strong, with a high level of craftmanship.
The Kent coop itself has been designed to be easy to clean. It comes with a large rear slide out tray, as well as a removable slatted floor in the nesting box. The rubber feet prevent rot whilst the ventilation holes ensure a free flow of fresh air without drafts affecting your birds.
The removable perches, nesting box and deep pull out tray, along with the traditional design, ensure cleaning really is quick and mess free.
Our clear and easy instructions are compiled with your satisfaction in mind, with just a simple manual screwdriver and adjustable spanner; anyone with just basic D.I.Y skills can assemble the coop and run.

How many hens can the Kent With Double Run hold?
The roosting and nesting area of the Kent coop will hold 4 to 5 medium sized birds. 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 up to 5 hens would be fine. However if they are to spend their entire day inside the Kent with Double Run then 4 hens would be our recommedation.
The benefit of all our coops is that the run can be extended at a later date should the need arise and in theory you can add as many run extensions as you need.
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 the lowlands of Scotland. If you live outside these areas we then, 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!
Delivery to Scotland
We can deliver to most lowland areas in Scotland. These include the following postcodes: DD , DG , EH , FK1-15 , G , KA1-26 , KA29-30 , KY , ML , PA1-19 , PH1-9 , TD
If you live outside these areas then unfortunately, we are unable to offer delivery due to the high extra charges levied by the courier companies we use. You are welcome to arrange your own courier to collect from us, or we can deliver the items to a courier up north for onward journey to you.
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.
1. How many hens can the Kent Coop With Double run hold?
The roosting and nesting area of the Kent coop will hold 4 to 5 medium sized birds. 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 then up to 5 hens would be fine. However, if they are to spend their entire day inside the Kent with Double Run then 3 - 4 medium sized hens would be our recommendation
The benefit of all our coops is that additional runs can be added at a later date to extend your space should the need arise and in theory you can add as many run extensions as you need.On a side note, we'd recommend that whatever your circumstance and set up it's best if you can give your hens at least a few hours outside their coop and run in the late afternoon and early evening.
2. Can I fit an Automatic Door Opener to this coop?
No unfortunately not. All the door openers on the market work with doors that open in an up/down direction (pop-hole doors). As the Kent has a hinged door a door opener would not work. However, the Devon Hen House has been specifically designed so that it can be fitted with an automatic door opener.
3. Can I move the Kent And Run easily?
Yes, it can be moved but at over 60kgs in weight, our best advice is to detach the runs first, before attempting to move the coop.
Can I add a run at a later stage?
Yes, you can add extra Kent Runs at any stage and you can join as many runs together to form as long space as you need. For more information on the Kent Run by itself click here: Kent Chicken Run.
5. Is the wood treated?
Yes, the Kent Chicken Coop comes with a base coat treatment of wood preservative.
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 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.
6. Can I use the Kent for rabbits?
While the product has been specifically designed to house chickens a few customers have purchased the Kent Chicken Coop for their rabbits and the feedback has been positive. We also make and sell wide range of well made rabbit hutches and runs: Visit our website: www.Rabbit-Hutches.co.uk
7. Is the Kent Chicken Coop 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 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 you have foxes in your area.
