  • Chicken Coop ‘Nkandla XL’

    Use Case: The 'Nkandla XL' is ideal for sleeping up to six average-sized chickens that occasionally require the security of a chicken run. However, if the chickens cannot roam outside the chicken run, no more than three hens should occupy this coop. If you wish to move the coop around, the mobile 'Tractor' model is your choice. The 'Villa' might be better suited if an attached chicken run is not required. If you want a more spacious chicken run, the 'Kardashi-Hens' is ideal. If you have more than six chickens, consider the 'Cluckingham Palace'. Cluck Yeah! Why the Chicken Coop Nkandla XL Belongs in Your Backyard (Even if You're Not a Zuma) Are you looking to upgrade your coop situation from a cardboard box to a palace fit for feathered royalty? Then look no further than the aptly named Chicken Coop Nkandla XL! Now, before you think this coop is reserved for South African presidents with questionable architectural taste, fret not – the Nkandla XL offers luxury living for your clucking companions at a fraction of the state budget. That's right, unlike its namesake, the Nkandla XL is all about down-to-earth functionality (and maybe a little coop-fu). This coop boasts ample space for up to six hens to roam, strut their stuff, plot world domination, or at least scratch out a comfortable living. Imagine it: two built-in roosts for practising their crow-fu kicks, a luxurious nesting compartment for hatching their devious plans (or, you know, laying eggs), and a fully enclosed chicken run to keep them safe from predators – even those with two legs and a mischievous glint in their eye. But the Nkandla XL isn't just about luxury for your feathered friends (though, let's be honest, they deserve it). This coop is built with high-quality materials to withstand the elements, so you can rest easy knowing your girls are safe and sound, come rain or shine. Plus, the easy assembly means you won't need to hire a team of architects (or a former president's cronies) to set it up. So, whether you're a seasoned chicken whisperer or a coop newbie looking to give your backyard birds the royal treatment, the Chicken Coop Nkandla XL is the perfect palace for your flock. After all, who wouldn't want to live in a coop inspired by the most talked-about chicken residence in South Africa (minus the controversy, of course)? So ditch the cardboard castles and give your feathered friends the coop they deserve. With the Nkandla XL, your chickens will live a high life, minus the hefty price tag (and, hopefully, the questionable building practices). Now get out there and cluck yeah!
  • Use Case: The 'Tractor' model is ideal for no more than three chickens who need to live in the safety of the chicken run. The coop is on wheels, so one person can quickly move it to fresh grazing patches. The 'Nkandla XL' model is a more economical option if mobility is not required.

  • 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!

  • Chicken Coop ‘Cluckingham Palace’

    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'Β 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. 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 more economical selection. The large henhouse 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 prevent this if you wish. 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 in the eggbox. The poop is a superb addition to the compost. The egg box contains four nesting compartments. 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 henhouse 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 not to 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 it to survive 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 several reasons. It provides a shady spot underneath, offers rain protection to the girls, and prevents undesired visitors from entering the henhouse. To fortify the palace at night, you could close the chicken access door and even unhook the ladder. The 'Cluckingham Palace' is suitable for sleeping up to twelve chickens, but that does not mean 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 segments to arrive at a size you like. The standard chicken run has two access doors for maintenance purposes. An optional chicken coop addition is a small sliding door through which chickens can leave and return. No larger animal can get through, so the chicken run becomes a safe sanctuary for your hens if they need to escape from something. You, of course, can open and close the door as you please. This free-ranging door is handy for letting the flock out in the morning and locking them up for the night. You will notice that we avoid the customary chicken wire for many reasons. Instead, we use a robust, maintenance-free plastic mesh, which is costly but looks better and lasts a lifetime without changing appearance.
