None - this means your coop will come with the standard wooden pop hole that is manually operated.
Premium pop hole opener and locking door combo, this is a Premium Chicken Guard door opener module which operates on time and light, and also comes with there pop hole which also has a locking mechanism.
Premium Pop hole opener - as above but this is just the door opener module that will work with our wooden pop hole.
Standard pop hole opener - This unit operates on a timer only.
This unit can be extended either by the standard extension size or we can make them to a bespoke length to suit your requirements, the extension will include side panels, roof panels and and new support panel where the existing door panel is. The extension can be fitted either when you first purchase or at a later date very easily, it will make the unit look at one complete coop.
Note - these units are supplied with a strong wooden roof, below we have offered some advice on this type of roof (we can offer alternative roof types please ask for details)
Fox Proof Base
This is a frame that is meshed on one side and the coop is built onto this to prevent animals digging under.
These have a mesh base and are the exact width of your house, your coop will sit flush on top of the base.
The coop is then screwed down onto to the base.
These bases help stop any predators burrowing under the house to get in.
We recommend using a deep litter of bark chips on top of the mesh.
Roofing And Options
The standard 12 mm roof of this chicken coop is a wooden cladding designed to provide many years service. It uses interlocking 12 mm shiplap boards, and provides very high levels of management of red mites, (no where for them to hide easily).
The roof being wood, will come pressure treated, this means the wood can be damp and take some time to fully dry out especially during the winter, wood acts as a sponge, so will move, knots may need resealing during its life as the wood moves around and should form part of your maintenance, we would also recommend treating the wood once or twice a year with a good quality treatment ideally containing water repellents to seal the wood, this will be important to do when new for optimum performance of the roof against rain.
We have been selling this type of roof on our chicken coops for many years, and the design has proved very successful.
Optional 16 mm Shiplap Roof - As above in terms of qualities and care but is made with thicker 16mm boards, these make the unit stronger and more durable to the weather, this is the best wooden roof available.
Optional Felt Roof - Our felt roof option has a roof made with 12 mm tongue and groove timber, which we then supply felt in a roll that you fit as part of the assembly. This type of roof will provide a easy to look after roof that needs very little maintenance and provides a water proof layer.
Optional Onduline Roof - This roof type is a wooden frame with black Onduline. The frame comes ready to fit to the coop as part of the assembly and the Onduline is cut ready for you to fit as the final stage of assembly, this provides a maintenance free roof that will provide many years of life, 10 years plus is to be expected.
Delivery was good. Putting it together was pretty straightforward. And the hens have really taken to it. So good all round.
The Buckingham is a quality product which was very easy to assemble with all the pieces fitting perfectly. Dealing with the Chicken House was easy and they responded very quickly. The Buckingham is very good value, it looks very neat and more importantly our hens love it. I would recommend this quality product to anyone. Thanks very much
The Buckingham hen house is a very well made house which will last for years. I chose to have the surrounding boarding which means hens are warm in the winter and shady in the summer. Arrived very well packaged and with straight forward instructions. A very pleasing house which is attractive in the garden, I will be adding some pots of flowers and maybe a climbing rose soon.
Not usually one for reviews and was initially hesitant to spend the money on a coop like this as have been disappointed by other manufacturers. But all I can say is the coop is absolutely fantastic, so much space and the quality is unbelievable, you can feel as soon as you unpack the parts that it is properly made and is so sturdy! I would say the next coop I would buy would be from here but I don’t think I’m ever going to need to buy a new one it is that good! Assembly was a breeze for a fairly large construction, and plenty of extra fixings in case you need them! Overall a fantastic experience buying from here and the chickens are definitely in love with their new palace!!
Arrived around 7 weeks after ordering, which I knew when I ordered. It was so easy to put together, even my husband found it ok so must be 😊
It looks great and the chickens love and so do we, it’s great to clean, and get into all the areas we love it
