The Dorset Ranger Six Chicken Coop with wheels. A thoroughly mobile Chicken Coop - Designed and Made by Flyte so Fancy.
A top quality mobile chicken coop with all the superb build finish and attention to detail that you expect in a Flyte so Fancy Chicken Coop.
The most mobile Chicken Coop on the market today. Pick it up with one hand and wheel it wherever you wish, every day if necessary. This coop is so easy to move around the garden, you will be amazed at how light and mobile it is.
The Dorset Ranger Six Chicken Coop comes with an integral Run – select a 6ft, a 9ft or a 12ft long Run. You can also select whether to have a heart window or not.
Spacious accommodation for up to six large birds and 'as practical as a pencil'. With wheels for mobility; a slide forward roof for access; good ridge ventilation; a large lift-off nest box for easy cleaning and a removable dirt tray.
A very strong unit, it is designed so that when you lift the run it is counter-balanced on the wheels. Just as easy with each run size, so it can be wheeled around using only one hand.
The run is very secure and built using strong timber frames with half-inch by one-inch 18g galvanised weldmesh - green plastic-coated for longevity. For top access to the run, there is a fold-out mesh panel near the house. A further pop-hole door at the end of the run means you can allow your birds out if you wish.
We supply two screw-in hooks to enable you to hang your drinker and feeder inside the run. This also means, when you decide to move your chooks to pastures new, the feeder and drinker will be lifted with it.
Inside the house are two perches and lots of space to accommodate 6 large birds. If accommodating very large birds, or only a few birds, just use one perch instead of two.
The external nest box has a lift-up lid for egg collecting and these unhook to remove them for access to the dirt tray. Most innovative of all is the sliding roof which gives so much more access to the house.
The Dorset Ranger is also Auto Door Opener compatible, see VSD Door Opener Kit.

Read the instructions first, took a leisurely hour and a half to put together. Worked perfectly first time. Good quality, very well made. I am very pleased with the Dorset Ranger Six Ranger Chicken Coop and I'm sure my chickees will be too.
Excellent design and worth every penny! Highly recommended.
The staff was very helpful and the make of the chicken house and run are excellent. They can accommodate the design to what you want. And the delivery was very quick too. The staff was very patience with me as I took awhile to make my mind up with which chicken house!! Brilliant I like the fact you lift it myself and move the run with no problems and very sturdy too.
Good quality products and excellent customer service nothing too much trouble. Very secure for the chickens and the design will make easy to clean out.
Everything was first class. From the order acknowledgement to delivery of the coop. The product is of the highest quality in both workmanship and materials. A very minor problem was dealt with very swiftly.
