Poultry Packages

BookAChook Poultry Packages

We think our coops are gorgeous!

They are built exclusively for BookAChook by a local craftsman who also builds concert harps. His attention to detail is second to none! Designed for bantam (small breed) hens, with ease of cleaning, predator proofing, durability and mobility foremost, they are perfect for bringing a little country into your backyard.

They are sold assembled, not “flat packed” and are extremely solid and built to last.

Package extras:

  • The BookAChook Chooky care pack: $50 –  Pestene Powder (lice and mite powder) and Piperazine (worming solution)

Specifications:

  • Length: 165cm
  • Width: 78cm
  • Height (Penthouse): 80cm
  • Height (Palace): 120cm
  • Hinged roof with wooden support bracket – easy access for feeding and cleaning
  • 2 nesting boxes – removable for ease of cleaning
  • Natural timber perch
  • Side opening lockable door for ‘free ranging’
  • Colorbond roof
  • Solid timber and wire base to prevent predator access

The coops are designed to house 2-5 bantam hens, with free ranging time desirable on most days.

Keep in mind that a chook doesn’t need head room! Spending a large sum on an enormous coop is spending money on empty space, without necessarily providing any additional floor space!

BookAChook coops are also suitable for housing your furry friends such as rabbits or guinea pigs.

Beware Dodgy Coops:

There are plenty of cheap coops available online or at the local hardware or pet store. You will also see them on the foot path for hard rubbish collection, for good reason! You get what you pay for – flimsy stained timber that degrades quickly, loose catches that a dog or fox can quickly chew off, and usually no flooring at all. You will end up spending extra time and money to make them more secure, so consider spending a little more initially, on a top quality, locally made product that will  last for years.
