  • Chicken Coop ‘Cluckingham Palace’

    Scam alert issued by GardenStuff! Someone in South Africa is defrauding many by using a professional-looking but fake chicken coop website.

We do ship nationwide, but a co-payment might be required; please enquire. The ‘Cluckingham Palace’ is the right choice if you have more than six chickens that need to be confined temporarily and safely in the fully enclosed chicken run. If a chicken run is unnecessary, the ‘Waldorf Eggstoria’ model might be a better and cheaper selection. The large hen-house comfortably sleeps up to twelve average chickens on four elevated roosts. Some hens prefer to sleep in the egg box instead. If you wish to prevent this, a nesting box access blocker can do this. While the chicken roost, their poop will land in two droppings trays below. It is such an easy job to keep the hen house clean. Pull out the trays and scrape the droppings off with a spatula stored inside the eggbox. The poop is a superb addition to the compost. The egg box contains four differently sized nesting compartments. Hens have not only personalities but also their individual preferences. Some want tight spaces, and others need room, so here they have options. Up to seven hens share one nest, but the average is three birds to one nest. There is no congestion as they lay their eggs at different times during the day. Egg collection is a breeze. Just lift the lid, hook it to the roof, and you have both hands free. To keep the chickens away from the nests while you are busy, drop in the nesting box access blocker. You can reach every spot in the hen-house without effort. There is a hinged maintenance door on both sides above the droppings trays. The robust barrel locks can be padlocked should you see a reason to do so. The ‘Cluckingham Palace’ has been designed to not overheat in full sun. Cool air draws into the henhouse from underneath, rises as it warms and exits through hidden ventilation slots in the roof. The henhouse rests on a sturdy base that has been CCA pressure treated. This treatment makes it possible to survive for years without much deterioration, even if placed in mud. We construct the chicken run with the same material, and it requires no maintenance. All our chicken coops are on those elevated bases for two reasons. One is to provide a shady spot and offer rain protection to the girls. The second reason is with regards to rodents, should you be so unfortunate to have those around. The elevation keeps mice and rats out of the henhouse as there is no entry point from underneath. In addition, you could close the chicken access door and even unhook the ladder to fortify the palace. The most effective prevention to attracting rodents to your coop is to have no food within reach. We highly recommend our ‘No Waste’ Chicken Feeder for this purpose. The ‘Cluckingham Palace’ is good to sleep up to twelve chickens, but that does not mean that so many birds should remain inside the chicken run permanently. The run is intended to be a temporary holding pen only. However, we can enlarge the run to any size you deem fit. If you look closely at the pictured chicken run, you might notice that it consists of three sections. We can add any number of segments to arrive at a size that you like. The standard chicken run has two access doors for maintenance purposes. A nifty optional extra is a small sliding door through which chickens can leave and return. No bigger animal will be able to get through, so the chicken run turns into a safe sanctuary for your hens if they need to get away from something. You, of course, can open and close the door as you please. This door comes in handy to let the flock out in the morning and lock them up for the night. You will notice that we stay away from the customary chicken wire for many reasons. Instead, we use a robust, maintenance-free plastic mesh. It is costly, but it looks better and lasts a lifetime without changing its appearance. Are you a prospective owner? New to raising chickens?

  • Scam alert issued by GardenStuff! Someone in South Africa is defrauding many by using a professional-looking but fake chicken coop website. The fraudsters website is an exact copy from a legitimate merchant in Australia. Free shipping to SA metros! Simple ± 30 minutes re-assembly. The 'Ikhaya' is ideal if you have only two or three chickens allowed to roam freely during the day. Inside the hen-house is an elevated roosting pole where up to three chickens can sleep comfortably side by side. The egg nest is on a platform that slots in place and can be stored away inside the coop if not wanted. This feature makes cleaning super easy. One egg nest is enough for three chickens as they lay their eggs at different times. Up to seven hens share one nest. Human access to the inside is easy too by just lifting off the roof. The coop is designed to stand in full sun without overheating. Fresh air draws in through the gaps in the bottom, and hot air escapes through the ventilation channel underneath the roof. All droppings in the hen-house fall onto a sliding tray. Once again, problem-free quick cleaning. The coop rests on an elevated base so no vermin can get inside. The solid chicken door is on hinges and has a barrel lock for added security. The removable chicken ladder is on hooks below the door.

  • Chicken Coop ‘Nkandla XL’

    R9,897.00
    Scam alert issued by GardenStuff! Someone in South Africa is defrauding many by using a professional-looking but fake chicken coop website. The fraudsters website is an exact copy from a legitimate merchant in Australia. For a limited time, free shipping to South African metros! The ‘Nkandla XL’ is one of our most popular chicken coops among the urban backyard chicken keepers. The hen-house comfortably sleeps up to six regular-sized chickens. The city bylaws allow us to keep five hens without needing a permit (Cape Town five hens, Johannesburg ten hens), so the ‘Nkandla XL’ size is just perfect. The fully enclosed chicken-run is meant to be a safe temporary holding pen only, not a permanent enclosure for many chickens. In that case, the ‘Kardashi-Hens’ coop would be a better choice as the chicken-run offers double the roaming space. We don’t use galvanised chicken wire for any of our coops, only a much better looking and robust black plastic mesh. Whatever people say, the chicken mesh will rust and disintegrate, not only becoming an eyesore but an injury risk to children and chickens alike. Our plastic mesh will look new for years to come, without needing any maintenance, neither will the super-strong framework, which is CCA pressure treated. We construct this chicken coop with weathering protected, solid pine. We don’t use cheap Chinese imports of low-grade or lightweight wood. Nothing is cheaply nailed together. We only use rust-resistant screws, galvanised bolts and stainless steel hinges – all expensive. This raised coop has a large, dual nesting box and two built-in roosting perches. Each perch can sleep up to three normal-sized chickens side by side. The hinged egg box lid allows for easy egg collection and quick cleaning. A barrier can block off the nesting compartment to the hens. The ‘Nkandla XL’ also comes with a pull-out droppings tray and a hinged maintenance door for cleaning and access. The door above the chicken ladder is lockable to keep the chicken in or out. A passive ventilation system prevents over-heating of the hen-house in full sun. The underside of the henhouse provides additional sun and rain protection. Are you a prospective owner? New to raising chickens?

You pay a lot of money for a proper chicken coop, so you expect a product that not only looks good but one that gives you years of trouble-free service.

This free-standing chicken coop is perfect for sleeping a free-ranging flock of more than six chickens but should house no more than twelve.

  • Scam alert issued by GardenStuff! Someone in South Africa is defrauding many by using a professional-looking but fake chicken coop website. The fraudsters website is an exact copy from a legitimate merchant in Australia. For a limited time, free shipping to South African metros! This mobile coop is precisely like the ‘Nkandla XL’; the only difference is the added wheels to enable one person to effortless push this coop to a different location. If your chickens can roam freely around in the garden, there is no need to have the ‘Tractor’. If, however, your chickens are permanently meant to live within the confined space, this is the coop to own. Chickens like to scratch around and pick off what they can. Moving the coop around prevents damage to the ground and gives the chickens a fresh patch to graze and fertilise. Although up to six normal-sized chickens can sleep comfortably in the hen-house, it is not recommended to have that many permanently confined in the 'Tractor'. The chicken-run does not offer enough space. The 'Tractor' is ideal for two, perhaps three hens. Are you a prospective owner? New to raising chickens?
