The ‘Kardashi-Hens’ Chicken Coop

Use Case:

The ‘Kardashi-Hens’ model is ideal for sleeping up to six average-sized chickens who require the safety of a more spacious chicken run for extended periods.

The ‘Nkandla XL‘ might be sufficient if you have about three chickens to keep secure.
The ‘Cluckingham Palace‘ is the coop to consider if you have more than six hens.

The ‘Kardashi-Hens’ chicken coop is equivalent to a business-class upgrade from the ‘Nkandla XL’ model as far as “leg space” is concerned. The Kardashi is ideal for 5 to 6 chickens, requiring the safety of the enclosure for extended periods.

Features:

● Approximate total expanse: 294 cm (l), 134 cm (w), chicken run 104 cm (h), henhouse 150 cm (h)
● Made of tongue and groove SA pine from sustainable forests, treated with a top marine-grade timber sealer
● No nails! Only galvanised bolts, stainless steel hinges and rust-resistant screws are used
● The henhouse is elevated for access security and to provide additional sun and rain protection underneath
● The egg box contains two nesting compartments (usually, three hens share one nest, but it can be up to seven). The hinged lid allows for easy egg collection
● A nesting compartment access blocker provides complete entry control to the egg box
● The slideable chicken door (aperture 30 cm x 20 cm) provides access control to the henhouse
● The chicken ladder is detachable
● Two roosting perches inside the henhouse, each comfortably sleeping three chickens side by side
● A thick plexiglass mullion window provides sufficient indoor lighting
● A lockable, hinged maintenance door allows for servicing the henhouse interior
● The slide-out droppings tray makes for quick henhouse cleaning
● A screened vent in the pitched roof prevents overheating
● The chicken run is made with weatherproofed CCA-treated pine and a strong and durable black plastic mesh, not short-lived chicken wire
● A hinged door allows for human access to the chicken run

Five reasons why a family should have a backyard chicken coop:

There are many advantages to having a backyard chicken coop. Here are a few:

  • Fresh eggs: Chickens lay eggs regularly so that you can have fresh eggs from your backyard. These eggs are often better tasting than shop-bought eggs, and you know exactly where they come from.
  • Reduced food waste: Chickens can eat a variety of food scraps, so you can lower your food waste by feeding them these scraps. It does good for the environment and can save money on food shopping bills.
  • Compost: Chicken manure is an excellent source of compost, which you can use to fertilize your garden. Your plants will grow healthier and more productively.
  • Pets: Chickens can make great pets. They are social animals and can provide companionship. They can also educate children, as they can learn about where their food comes from and how to care for animals.
  • Reduced pest population: Chickens are natural pest control. They will eat insects, rodents, and other pests that can damage your garden or home. This can save you money on pest control products and services.

If you are considering getting backyard chickens, there are a few things you need to keep in mind. First, you must check your local bylaws to ensure chickens are legal in your area. Second, you must provide your chickens with a safe and secure coop. Third, you need to feed and water your chickens regularly. Fourth, you need to collect their eggs regularly. Fifth, you need to clean their coop regularly.

With some planning and effort, having a backyard chicken coop can be a rewarding experience. You can enjoy fresh eggs, reduce food waste, produce compost, have pets, and reduce your pest population.

Here are some additional tips for raising backyard chickens:

  • Start with a small flock of chickens. This will make it easier to care for them and less overwhelming.
  • Choose chickens that are good layers. This will ensure that you have a steady supply of eggs.
  • Provide your chickens with a safe and secure coop. The coop should be predator-proof and have plenty of ventilation.
  • Feed your chickens a balanced diet. This will help them stay healthy and lay more eggs.
  • Clean your chickens’ coop regularly. This will help prevent the spread of disease.
  • Enjoy your fresh eggs!

    Absoluely love our Kardashi-Hens’ Chicken Coop! Easily shipped up to Johannesburg for us. Easy to put together with step-by-step instructions included! The coop is beautifully put together with fantastic finishings which has made it a beautiful addition to our garden! The chickens, of course, love it too!

    We are now proud owners of the Kardashi-Hen House! What amazing service and what a beautiful chicken coop – or should I say palace! So beautifully made with painstaking attention to detail – true craftsmanship. Swift delivery and exceptional personal service and input from Uli and Jenya. Exceptional! Chickens are overjoyed and so are we.

    • Uli

      Dear Lucy and Heinz, Jenya and I were bearing a grin for quite some time after reading your marvellous review, not only about your chicken coop, or palace as you dubbed it but also about your happiness for the service received. We thank you both for supporting us and publicly expressing your satisfaction with dealing with us.

    After a dismally failed attempt at building my own Chicken Coop and a bunch of 5 teenage girls who refused to use it; I decided to spoil them to a custom built home.

    I started my lengthy search on the Internet and stumbled across Garden Stuff and instantly decided that my new Coop will be one of their beautiful Coops and ordered the Kardashi-Hens.

    I was so impressed with their professionalism in answering all my questions and speedy delivery. Within 10 days I had my Coop set up and ready for use.

    Being a keen gardener I love the fact that the Coop is so beautifully crafted that it is a feature in my garden, but most of all I love the fact that my girls love it.

    Thank You Uli and Jenya.

      Dear Stella, we had such a good chuckle reading your introductory lines about building your coop and your girls refusing to move in. It took me back about eight years ago as I experienced a similar downright rejection from our flock.

      Since my search for a ready build quality chicken homestead drew a blank, I had no choice but to try again and improve and perfect our chicken coop building skills over many years until we got it right.

      I love your recognition that our chicken coop is a feature in your gorgeous garden and not something that needs to be hidden out of sight. And I am delighted to make out that your bunch of teenage girls are happy with your choice and have forgiven you.

      Thank you, Stella, for your fantastic review.
