There is a large door to the walk-in run, double doors to the house as well as a mesh entry door under the house. This means that the Flyte Aviary 8 Coop is perfect for placing in the corner of your garden or up against hedges, fences and walls.
For the roof we have used a hard wearing, phenolic-coated, resin board meaning the roof is entirely waterproof, resulting in a warm and dry house. PLEASE NOTE: DUE TO SUPPLY CHAIN ISSUES THE ROOF OF THE AVIARY COOP IS CURRENTLY OUR NEVER-LEAK 9mm RECYCLED GREY POLYPROPYLENE (as used on the Handy Hen House range). JUST AS SECURE, JUST AS LEAK-PROOF.
The floor is made of smooth 12mm resin board and is fully removable which means total surface cleaning is incredibly easy. We think both of these features will help prevent mite infestation taking hold in those hard-to-get-at places in the house.
The tall spacious run gives the hens plenty of room to roam and even has the unique characteristics of an outside 'veranda' of day-perches, perfect for enjoying that afternoon nap. For even more roaming room we offer 3ft extension panels to increase the run area.
Extra features can be added to make protection from the elements all the more complete, which is often necessary with our more delicate girls.
A timber skirting can be fitted to the run (shown in these main images) to give ground level refuge as well as being perfect to retain a woodchip ground covering if used.
A polycarbonate roof (6mm twin wall) can be added to the top of the run, providing shelter without reducing light, and keeping the surface of the run dry.
To add an Automatic Door Opener to the Aviary take a look at External Chicken House Door Openers
and, if ordered at the same time as the house, we will fit it for you. The door openers will sit outside the house section itself, inside the run, and directly above the pop-hole door. If ordering to retro-fit then you would only need the opener unit i.e. you do not need a lightweight door or any extra cord, or pulleys.
