The Lodge ( 4 Chickens)

£350.00

A great looking plastic house suitable for four large fowl or up to eight bantams.

These houses have a ten year warranty. They are very easy to put together , easy to move , easy to clean and are priced very competitively.No yearly treatment required and no red mite !! They also work well with the automatic door opener and closer which you can also purchase from use. We are very proud to be able to stock these houses that are built and designed in the South West.

Our Chicken Lodge Medium is made from recycled plastic and will hold  4 large fowl or 8 bantams. It has 2 removable perches. The door is designed so that it won’t trap dirt in the door slots, and it can be easily opened and closed, either manually or with a Chicken guard auto-opener. Access to inspect the birds can be gained via a full width back door which detaches using quick release pins. When the door is removed, there is no ‘lip’ on the floor edge. This, and the fact that the roof removes in seconds as well, makes regular cleaning a breeze. Access to the nesting box is quick and easy – just remove two quick release pins and lift off the lid. The entire nest box can be completely removed for cleaning by undoing more quick release pins.This lodge has permanent under-eave ventilation, as well as two adjustable circular vents. Even though the sides are made from black plastic, the house remains surprisingly cool, even in strong, direct summer sunlight.Being plastic, the houses require no maintenance. There are few crevices for pests (such as red mite) to hide in, and the house can be thoroughly cleaned very easily – in seconds if you have a pressure washer. And it will dry out very quickly, too.Carry handles are cut into the roof, so it is easy to move. But, even if you need to dismantle your hen house for any reason, perhaps because you are moving house for example, you can easily do so and then rebuild it just as easily. Your hen house will not be damaged by this process.

CONSTRUCTION
The house is made primarily from 9mm thick recycled polyethylene (the roofs and nest box lids are made from 6mm). It is delivered flat-packed and can be quickly assembled by following the comprehensive instructions in our User Guide – you should allow about an hour for this if it is the first time you have assembled one of our houses. Most parts are held together using clips made from our own waste plastic, though quick release clips (linch pins) and some other parts are metal..
