• Chicken Coop ‘Cluckingham Palace’

    R16,897.00
    Use Case: The 'Cluckingham Palace' is ideal for sleeping up to twelve average-sized chickens that need to have the safety of a chicken run occasionally. If an attached chicken run is not required, the 'Waldorf Eggstoria' might interest you. Should you prefer a chicken run that you can walk into, consider 'The Eggsquisite.' The 'Kardashi-Hens' might be sufficient if you have six or fewer hens. Technical Details: Please scroll down for measurements, features and an intro video. Delivery: We courier this coop flat-packed to SA metros at no charge. The re-assembly is straightforward and done by one person in 60 - 90 minutes. The last step requires one assistant to drop on the roof. No extra tools and no DIY expertise is required. We deliver and set up in Cape Town and its immediate surroundings at no cost. Description: 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, and a nesting box access blocker can do this if you wish to prevent this. While the chickens 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 have both hands free. Drop in the nesting box access blocker to keep the chickens away from the nests while you are busy. You can reach every spot in the hen-house without effort. A hinged maintenance door is on both sides above the droppings trays, and the robust barrel locks can be padlocked if wanted. 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 allows survival for years without much deterioration, even if placed in mud. We construct the chicken run with the same material, requiring 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 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 of 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 supposed 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 small sliding door through which chickens can leave and return is a nifty optional extra. No larger 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 is handy for letting the flock out in the morning and locking 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 looks better and lasts a lifetime without changing its appearance. Additional Information: Are you a prospective owner? New to raising chickens?

  • Scam alert issued by GardenStuff! Someone in South Africa defrauded many by using a professional-looking but fake chicken coop website. The fraudster's website is an exact copy from a legitimate merchant in Australia. Use Case: The 'Ikhaya' is ideal for sleeping up to two normal-sized chickens.

We deliver in Cape Town and its immediate surroundings at no cost. Description: The 'Ikhaya' is ideal if you have only two chickens that roam freely during the day. Inside the hen-house is an elevated roosting pole for two chickens to sleep comfortably. The egg nest is on a platform that slots in place and can be stored inside the coop if not needed. This feature makes cleaning super easy. Up to three chickens share one nest as they lay their eggs at different times. Access into the hen-house is easy by just lifting off the roof. The coop is designed to stand in full sun without overheating. Cool air draws in through the ventilation gaps in the floor, and heated air escapes through the ventilation channel underneath the roof. All droppings in the hen-house fall onto a sliding tray. Once again, problem-free and super quick cleaning. The coop rests on an elevated base so no unwanted animals can enter. The sturdy, hinged chicken door has a barrel lock for added security. The chicken ladder is on hooks so that you can remove it. Features: - The material is solid pine throughout, treated with a marine-grade wood sealer, galvanised bolts and rust-resistant screws. - A ventilation channel under the lift-off roof prevents over-heating. - The hinged entrance door has a barrel lock for added security. - The elevated roosting pole is removable. - The nesting platform unhooks and, therefore super easy to clean. - The droppings tray slides out for cleaning. - One can unhook the chicken ladder. - The framed window is secure with 3 mm thick plexiglass. - The roof is slightly pitched and can be lifted off to gain access. - The chicken door aperture is 30 cm x 19.5 cm, big enough for standard sized chickens. - You can choose one of three design themes for the chicken door (plain, SA flag or a chick ornament).

  • Chicken Coop ‘Nkandla XL’

    R10,499.00
    Use Case: The 'Nkandla XL' is ideal for sleeping up to six average-sized chickens that occasionally require the security of a small chicken run. If you wish to move the coop, the mobile 'Tractor' model is your choice. If an attached chicken run is not required, the 'Villa' might be better suited. If you want a more spacious chicken run, the 'Kardashi-Hens' is ideal. If you have more than six chickens, consider the 'Cluckingham Palace'. Technical Details: Please scroll down for measurements, features and an intro video. Delivery: We courier this coop flat-packed to SA metros at no charge. The re-assembly is straightforward and done by one person in 45 to 60 minutes. No extra tools and no DIY expertise is required. We deliver and set up in Cape Town and its immediate surroundings at no cost. Description: Hen House: There are two roosts of slightly different thicknesses. Some hens believe that thicker is better; others disagree. There is enough space for three average-sized chickens to sleep comfortably on each perch. Their nightly droppings end up in the cleaning tray below, which you can pull out and empty. It is gold for your compost heap if you have one. Keeping the coop clean is a breeze. Egg Box: A more rewarding task is retrieving their other gold, the eggs. On average, three hens share one nest, but it can even be seven birds. Of course, the ladies don't squeeze in there simultaneously; they lay their eggs at different times of the day. Again, the sizes of the two nesting compartments differ as some hens prefer space, and others want it tight, so here they have options too. If you want to deny the hens access to the eggbox, you can do so with a blocker panel. Reasons could be that you want to prevent hens from becoming broody or don't like them to sleep in the egg box. Another handy tool is a poop scraper, which helps clean the droppings tray and the nests. Chicken Access Door: The chickens enter the hen-house over a detachable ladder and a lockable sliding door. With the Nkandla, there is no need for you to open and close this door mornings and evenings unless you want to. Chickens do their own thing anyway and enter and leave when it's time. Chicken Run: The chicken run should be a temporary holding pen only; it is not a permanent enclosure for so many chickens. If you need to keep them inside for more extended periods, you might want to have a look at the Kardashi-Hens chicken coop. The hen-house is like the Nkandla's, but the chicken run is double the size. We assemble our chicken runs with modular components. Here we have three modules. If you have a different chicken run size in mind than our standard, we can add as many modules as you want. On the other hand, if you don't need a chicken run, the Villa model is probably a better and cheaper option. Construction Materials: A top-quality chicken coop cannot be built for cheap, especially if it has to be of good service for many years. We don't cut corners by using inferior or inexpensive materials. It has to be the best materials available to us in South Africa. The same applies to construction methods. For example, we use a modern joinery technique from the US that is barely known here. For the Chicken Run: We don't use the standard chicken wire for any of our chicken runs as it rusts, turns brittle and unsightly and becomes a danger for chickens and children. Instead, we use a much better-looking, robust plastic mesh that will not change its appearance in our lifetime. The hinges are stainless steel, the bolts galvanised, and the screws zink coated and rust-resistant. The material for the framework of the chicken run and the base of the hen-house is CCA pressure-treated pine, and it can stand even in mud for years without deteriorating much. For the Hen-House: The hen-house is made with solid pine, not with particleboard or plywood. We treat the pine with the top marine-grade timber sealer available on the market, the same stuff used for oceangoing wooden yachts. The manufacturer recommends three coats; we apply four. A few optional extras are available for this chicken coop that you might find practical, and you will find them on this page. Additional Information: Are you a prospective owner?

  • Use Case: The 'Waldorf Eggstoria' is ideal for sleeping up to twelve average-sized chickens roaming freely during the day. If you only have a maximum of six chickens, the 'Villa' is a more economical option. If your chickens need to be confined temporarily to a chicken run, look at the 'Cluckingham Palace'. Technical Details: Please scroll down for measurements, features and an intro video. Delivery: We courier this coop flat-packed to SA metros at no charge. The re-assembly is straightforward and done by one person in 50 - 70 minutes. The last step requires one assistant to drop on the roof. No extra tools and no DIY expertise is required. We deliver and set up in Cape Town and its immediate surroundings at no cost. Description: The 'Waldorf Eggstoria' will impress your visitors! 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. If you have less than seven chickens, the 'Villa' coop should suffice. This raised coop has a large, four-bay nesting box and four built-in roosting perches on elevations. Each roost comfortably sleeps up to three regular-sized chickens side by side. The hinged egg box lid allows for quick egg collection and cleaning. You can block off access to the nesting compartment for the hens. The hen house incorporates two pull-out trays and two hinged maintenance doors on the opposite sites for easy access. The door above the chicken ladder is lockable to keep the chicken inside or out. A hidden ventilation system prevents over-heating of the hen-house in full sun. The underside of the henhouse provides additional sun and rain protection. We construct this chicken coop with weathering-protected, solid pine. We don't use cheap Chinese low-grade or lightweight wood imports; nothing is shabbily nailed together. We only work with rust-resistant screws, galvanised bolts and stainless steel hinges – all pricey. This coop is expensive to produce, and you will never find it discounted.
