NOTE - This model has been updated and the changes are, the ventilation is now fixed at the rear, the variable vent has been removed as insufficient air flow can happen if closed and full capacity of hens are in the unit, and there is no harm being caused with drafts etc. Further Cladding can be added to The Buckingham if you would like a more enclosed Run. External nest boxes can be added to this unit. Please see Added Extras for more information.

Wooden cladding surround (optional)

We are happy to clad the bottom of any of our deluxe units.

Cladding the bottom of your house will maintain a clean and tidy area.

Extension (optional)

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)

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.

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.

Great coop

I have had this coop a few months now and wanted to say to all you would be purchasers that it is brilliant. I did make some changes on the order, I incporated two opening internal doors, save getting wet when cleaning on rainy days. It all works well and my twelve hybrids love it, they free range during the day but always go into the run if ts raining. So a very big thank you for all the advice and help with the ordering and for supplying/building this brilliant coop. Delivery and building was all very straight forward too!!

Excellent chicken coop and run

This arrived exactly as arranged and was brilliant packed on one pallet using a framework which gave extra timber to make into roosts for the run area.
I ordered the extra 3ft run and the boarded up bottom section, both are invaluable. The run would be quite small without the 3ft extension, in fact I wish I had room for another 3ft but I don’t. The boarded up bottom of the run gives them a fantastic completely sheltered area under the coop and stops a lot of the wood chip being kicked out of the run when they’re scratching about. The coop is a very good size, but I don’t think the middle roost is necessary.
The instructions were not the clearest, but myself and 17 year old daughter managed to put it up in a very limited space in a morning.
Overall, very happy with the coop and run.

Easy to construct and looks great. Chickens have settled in well.

Best hen house

If you are considering investing in a hen house then go no further than The Buckingham. Well made, sturdy, easy to put together. In my view the only hen house to consider if you want happy, safe hens.
