Hobby Hen House

Price: 345.00 (Including VAT at 20%)


Heart Window?

The Hobby Hen House, with its leaning towards traditional Ark-style design, is a popular small chicken house particularly if you are starting out with poultry keeping.


It will take up to 6 medium-sized laying hens, it has removable perches and a removable internal nest tray. For larger birds like Orpingtons we would suggest allowing a maximum of 4 hens (shown here with a trio of Pekin Bantams), not sutiable though for large cockerels.

The Hobby Hen House is raised on small legs and has two handles on either end. The pop hole door doubles as the ramp, the back door lifts out to allow easy access for cleaning and egg collecting.

The Hobby Henhouse arrives ready assembled (it cannot be flatpacked). If you could like to add an enclosed run to the house see the Hobby Hen House with 9ft Run together and save £19.

Option to add the VSD automatic pop-hole door opener - add the VSD Kit below and we will fit this for you.

Max. external dimensions:- 104cm wide x 140cm deep x 121cm high; Internal house:- 96cm W x 80cm D x 94cm H max. Pop-hole size: 25cm wide x 30cm high.

Currently approx 5 week delivery. Arrives ready assembled, just screw the handles back on. The Hobby Henhouse is delivered on a pallet via Palletline Transport Company, please see the Delivery page for more information.

Painting service for the Hobby Hen House.

As you would imagine, we've selected only the very best long-lasting, microporous Hen-friendly paint for the task of painting your Hen House (please note this does not include the painting of any wired runs that you may choose to go with your henhouse).

From a bold statement of style to the subtlest of traditional earthy tones, we hope you will agree that these classic colour combinations are irresistible.

NOTE: Select your colours above where the 'body' will be the front and back vertical faces and the 'roof and accents' will include the whole sloping roof (of course), the handles and short vertical side, the legs, the ramp and pop hole door surround.

The paint we use is Dulux Aquatech Paints Range which are micro-porous paints designed to last for many years of outdoor life. They give a highly flexible opaque finish which provides excellent resistance to peeling, flaking and blistering. They are quick drying and protect exterior wood for up to 6 years. We do also provide small pots of touch up paint with any hen house we paint.

We have tried to ensure the shades shown here are a true representation of the colour but often the colour you see will depend on the screen setting of your computer or iPad. if the colour required is crucial to your scheme please do just call us for paint sample to be sent, 01300 345229.

Please make your selection from the drop down boxes above, add to the shopping basket with the henhouse but please note, the painting service will add approx 2 weeks to the henhouse delivery time. Of course do mention when ordering if you have a required-by date in mind.
