Maggie's 24 Hen House
The Maggie's 24 Hen House - a large 24-bird house designed and made by Flyte so Fancy.
The Maggie's 24 Hen House is a large, traditional-style, Chicken House designed for the more determined poultry keeper with room inside for around 24 laying hens. Approx dimensions externally incl. Nest box 7ft x 5ft x 6ft.
For smaller hens like Bantams then capacity would be up to 30 or for larger breeds, like the Brahmas shown in our images, we would suggest that 16-18 would be comfortable.

The Maggie's Hen House is a substantial, robust, fox-proof hen house for 24 hard-working hens.
For full details of how we make our chicken houses please see About our Houses.
There is an extra-large pop-hole that has a drop-down ramp. This folds up to secure the house and closes with a tough galvanised bolt.
A large access door at the back makes the inside easily accessible for cleaning. A pull-out droppings board under the four removable perches aids the cleaning process and the nest box section lifts off for even better access.
The nest boxes are divided into four separate compartments so that the hens have a cosy nest for laying. We design our hen houses to allow one nest box space per 5-6 birds but you will find that generally speaking, the birds will do the very British thing of queuing for their favourite seat.
There is a meshed ventilation window with a night shutter on the opposite side to the nest boxes which, along with the apex ventilation, gives a good flow of fresh air to maintain a healthy atmosphere for the birds at night.
Under this window is an access panel for the droppings board to be removed so you can easily dispose of the bedding.
We offer options to add an Automatic Pop-hole Door Opener which, if ordered with the hen house, we will fit it for you.
To give your new hen house that extra zing why not take a look at the colour options with our Painting Service for the Maggie's 24 - from bright and bold to subtle and earthy.
