Plastic henhouses

Really disappointed, thought they would at least be the shape of a frog..... :wacko:

It never worries me when I get a little lost, all I do is change where I'm going

No, you can't fit a door opener on the model I have, but haven't looked at other models, not being in the market for one. All my stock are now in open fronted pens.

Hi, I have one of these http://www.theclevercoopcompany.com/
It is brilliant and so so easy to clean. I just pressure wash it often....
I am really pleased with mine and I feel although quite expensive it was worth the money. It has relieved my red mite no end as it's easier to keep blasted clean. It all comes apart although I don't take it apart, I remove the nest box trays and floor soil tray and the perches. 

Hope this helps.

That looks really interesting MelM - I might be in the market for a new coop soon. I've been getting the Cocoon hen houses which are at the cheaper end of the market, but they don't last for more than 2-3 years. Otherwise I do like their layout.

I'll need to decide whether to go for wood or plastic - given the red mite infestation we have right now. Time to treat myself to a new hen house!  Smile

On the subject of having a pop hole auto timer on plastic houses I think it would depend on the model. I'm sure with a bit of diy you could fit one to this type

I've got a green frog hen house. Brilliant piece of kit. Would really recommend in spite of the price.

Well I finally got my plastic henhouse after another summer battle huge populations of red mite. Even my husband said he thought the GROUND was infested with red mite. So he was all for ordering a new house. We got the smart eco house from Solway recycling. We're really liking it and so are the hens.

Is that the one that looks like an Anderson shelter?! If so, its the same as mine, from the same place. When we first got it, my chooks would NOT got into it at night - but at least used the nest boxes. After two months of this, I put them in manually for about a week - now they are all in before dusk!  Big Grin
