The CC007 House is a very popular chicken coop.
The overall dimensions are 100cm x 124cm (includes overhangs and nest box). Great value house with three perches, treble nest box and pull out cleaning tray, suitable for up to 9 hens (size dependent)
This unit is supplied flat packed for easy home assembly.
Treatment - Although this product comes treated from the factory we recommend treating again within a month of assembly or if its winter ideally before use, with a good quality preserver ideally a oil / solvent based product like Barrattine, and repeat once or twice a year as necessary, this will protect the wood and help avoid mould spores forming in damp winter weather.
Had to tweak a couple of flaws with this product. Rain came into the nesting box area so have put some rubber covering on the lid. I have 4 hens and would not want to put any more than two more in here so the description of up to 9 is very optimistic . Other than that, this will do well for its purpose. After a couple of coats of paint it looks nice .
Solid coop, really pleased with it. I did spend time giving it the cuprinol treatment, as my ladies wanted it in pink lol. I also was so delighted in the service from The Hen House Company, staff were great, informative and delivery was so quick.
Great little coop, very sturdy.
Excellent customer service from The Hen House Company 👍
The Chicken House arrived in good time and was well packed and encased in boxes. On opening we sadly found some minor damage, but not sufficient to warrant return as we were able to repair what was broken.
The weakness was mainly due to very poor nailing and gluing of some of the internal perch supports and sliding door knobs. This was not enhanced by the thinness of the wooden panelling covering which while adequate was a little disappointing and made strong fixing a challenge. The build instructions were adequate and no issues found.
Two good coats of wood preservative and fixing on wheels gave a solid mobile hen house, which our small flock took to straight away. The purchase was to cover the bird flu restrictions, so the new house will go into store from 18/4/23 until the next bout of avian flu, which inevitably will come at the end of 2023.
Would I buy another one, probably not. perhaps a more robust chicken house might be a better option next time.
Received delivery next day. Wow. We needed it in a hurry for 6 rescues.
Easy to erect. Plenty room inside.
If there was anything I can recommend it would be to paint if needed before putting girls in. We didn't have time and wish I had.
That's my fault.
Highly recommend. It's well made and the tray slides out easy to clean.
