About Flyte so Fancy


Flyte So Fancy is a family run company based in rural Dorset in the village of Pulham, about halfway between Dorchester and Sturminster Newton, and 8 miles from Sherborne. Our shop is open 8am - 5.00pm Mon to Fri and 9am to 4pm on Saturdays, or, contact us on 01300 345229 8am - 5.30pm Mon to Fri, 9am-4pm on Sat. We are closed Sundays and Bank Holidays. Please leave a message at other times and we will call back.

We (Phillip and Anne Weymouth) wanted to specialise in making handbuilt, high-quality Poultry and Animal Houses that are as eco-friendly and 'organic' as possible, so we opened Flyte so Fancy in our workshop 'at the bottom of the garden' in 2001.

Twenty years later ... We have a wonderful Flyte so Fancy crew and they are - Matt (General Manager), Daniel (Office/Sales Manager), Ellie, Maddie, (Sales). Mark (Workshop Foreman), Toby, Jon, Zak, Aiden, Paul, Dean, Toby2, James (Workshop); Phil (Warehouse Supervisor), Andy (Site Foreman), Kevin, Sharon, Molly (Packing/Despatch). Maggie & Debbie (Accounts/HR), plus Dee & Rob part-time.

Display Area & Shop

We have a display area beside the workshop for customers to view our full range of Chicken Houses and Coops, Duck Houses, Goose Houses, Pet Houses, Log & Garden Stores, Bird Tables etc, and a shop with stock of all kinds of poultry supplies, chicken gifts, garden bird supplies, log baskets and fireside tools, and, electric fencing equipment from Hotline.

Please note, that we do not sell any of our products directly on ebay or Amazon. Second-hand FSF houses do appear occasionally on eBay but they usually say that it is 2nd-hand if it is.

Some chicken houses are available from stock to 'take away' but please call first to check availability. Opening times are above but please see the Delivery Information page for opening times over Bank Holidays.

We really value direct contact with our customers to make sure you receive exactly what you want, you will then receive all the customer support and guarantees of a bonafide product.


We use our knowledge of design and love of wood, plus our long experience of poultry keeping, to produce beautifully crafted Hen Houses finished to a high standard. All the houses on this website have been designed and developed by Phillip and Anne and are unique in their structure and build quality. We found a big demand for 'really nice' Hen Houses and customers know they will get something that not only looks good, is handmade here in Dorset, but will also last for many, many years.

In June 2021 we launched our new Flyte so Fancy website and brought our sister websites of Dorset Log Stores (Log & Garden Stores) and Framebow Pet Housing (Catios, Rabbit Houses, Aviaries) all under one umbrella.

If you have any questions about our products, how we make them or indeed about the correct housing and products to suit your needs, please feel free to email or call us 01300 345229.

We have been keeping chickens, ducks, and all kinds of other birds and animals, ourselves for over 32 years and have picked up one or two ideas in that time, as everyone does, and are quite happy to offer advice from our own experiences if required.

We have created several pages here on our website - in the Information Centre - answering many of your questions on topics such as Red Mite, Feather Pecking etc and even which breeds of poultry to buy. Then, why not also visit our Ask Phill YouTube video series to where you will find lots of hints and tips on all manner of subjects.

Kind Regards
Phillip and Anne
