‘The Villa’ Henhouse


(3 customer reviews)

Use Case:
The ‘Villa’ is ideal for sleeping up to six average-sized chickens roaming freely during the day.

The ‘Ikhaya‘ might be sufficient if you have only two chickens.
If you have more than six free-roaming chickens, check out the ‘Waldorf Eggstoria‘.
If your chickens need to be confined temporarily to a chicken run, look at the ‘Nkandla XL‘.

You pay good money for a proper chicken coop, so you expect a product that looks pleasing and gives you years of trouble-free service.

We construct this 6-seater henhouse with solid pine only: no sheets, particle boards, or low-grade or lightweight wood imported from Asia.
Nothing on our coops is nailed together cheap- cheap. We only use rust-resistant screws, galvanised bolts and stainless steel hinges – valuable and lasting components.

To withstand the elements, we treat the pine with the top marine-grade timber sealer available, the same that ocean-going wooden yachts protect. We don’t go the much cheaper linseed oil treatment way, and linseed oil is suitable for wooden planter boxes but is not valuable for objects like a chicken coop.
The material for the henhouse base is CCA pressure-treated timber, and it can even stand in mud for years without much rotting away.

The henhouse is elevated on a base to protect it from the elements and keep vermin out. The ‘Villa’ possesses a dual nesting box and two built-in roosting perches. Each roost comfortably sleeps up to three average-sized chickens side by side. The hinged egg box lid allows for quick egg collection and cleaning. You can block off the nesting compartment to the hens.

The ‘Villa’ has a pull-out droppings tray and a hinged maintenance door for easy access and cleaning. You can lock the door above the chicken ladder to keep the chickens in or out.
A passive ventilation system prevents the henhouse from overheating in full sun. The underside of the henhouse provides additional sun and rain protection.

GardenStuff’s chicken coops are unmatched and add character to your garden.

    Great quality material.

    Really happy to see great service still exist!

    • Uli

      Thank you for your excellent rating of the ‘Villa’ and our service. Here at GardenStuff, all are full of smiles, especially Leon; he made your chicken coop. All of the best for your new chicken adventure, you will love it. Thank you so much again, Julie.

  2. Hawa (verified owner)

    Thank you for this excellent quality coop. I have not come across such a well made animal shelter. My only suggestion would be to use a different material at the bottom of the tray and nesting box. It gets damaged if there is some water that gets near it. other than that I love the Villa. Thank you!

    • Uli

      Thank you very much for your compliment and especially your suggestion, dear Hawa. We treasure constructive criticism as it helps to creep closer to perfection, one request at a time. We made our first ‘Villa’ model about six years ago, and today’s blueprint has little in common with the original prototype. So thank you again that you, too, are helping us become and remain the top commercial chicken coop producer in the country.

    • Uli

      Thank you so much for your five stars, Merle. We love it that you and your feathery friends love their Villa.
