The Chepstow Coop
A comfortable home for 8 large chickens, or 10 Bantams.
The Nesting Box
The box extends from the side of the coop, with a hinged lid for easy egg collection. the lid is attached by a pair of heavy duty galvanised hinges, with a hasp and staple latch to ensure predators cannot gain access. A black rubber storm strip prevents rainwater leaking through the join attaching the lid. Internally, it has three plastic dividers to allow for four laying hens at a time.
Large Rear Door
The large door is hinged on one side, secured shut with galvanised turn catches. When open, there is plenty of space for cleaning.
The ladder is attached with a pair of heavy duty nuts and bolts, it can be easily removed for transport or cleaning.
The Pop Door
The Pop door slides down from the inside of the coop, it is secured open from the back of the coop, via a waxed rope and marine grade stainless steel carabiner shackle. We can install an AXT automatic doorkeeper discreetly on the inside of the coop, add it to your order at checkout and we will fit it free of charge.
We use a recycled black plastic known as Stokbord, which is a perfect product for our coops. Stokbord is incredibly hard wearing, durable, non-absorbent (hygienic) and strong; it requires no ongoing maintenance, and it can even be pressure washed if required. Stokbord is manufactured from recycled agricultural waste collected exclusively from farms in the United Kingdom. We also use Stokbord for the sliding door and nest box dividers. Stokbord is significantly better than the plywood used in many other coops, as it will not rot or rust over time and is resistant to chicken droppings, and much easier to deep clean!
Our coops are designed for easy cleaning in mind. door is large, allowing for plenty of access when open. The perch bars are removable to make it easier to clean the floor. The nesting area has a removable lip, when in place it will keep the bedding in place, and once removed makes it very easy to clean the individual nesting compartments. The stokbord plastic can be washed with detergent and water.
Add an Easy-Clean removable rubber mat for £25.95, select the option at checkout.
All wood used in our coops is pressure treated and of external grade. We use tanalised Scandinavian redwood shiplap cladding for the roofing, along with pressure treated 45mmx45mm batten timber for the carcassing of our coops. This combination of the finest quality wood and finish result in an outstanding ability to withstand the harshest of weather conditions for many years.
