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.
Delivered assembled (cannot be flatpacked or disassembled).
The Hobby Hen House 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 suitable for large cockerels though.
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.
You can add the VSD automatic pop-hole door opener at the same time as ordering the house - and we will fit this for you at no extra cost.
Select from the drop-down box for with or without heart window options and then choose whether you would like to add a Run at the same time. Choose to add either a 6ft long Run or a 9ft Run and save up to £20 when buying these together. The Run would arrive, with the hen house, in panels for simple self-assembly.

Flyte So Fancy bent over backwards to deliver our duck house in quite unusual circumstances. They couldn't have been more helpful. It was easy to put together and the ducks seem to like it.
Delivered on time, Rapid response to query and correction of fault does everthing it says on the tin
Delivery prompt and on time, would recommend to all and future purchases definite! Sturdy and well built, value for money. Fantastic!!
Very helpful Exactly what I wanted. (A bit of a struggle to get through my side garden gate but that was my fault as I hadn't allowed for the width of the added wheels). Looks great in my garden, easy to clean and move about. Happy hens!
We had a bit of a problem with delivery, and Phil and his team could not have been more helpful, and have taken more trouble to sort it out quickly and efficiently. Many thanks! Delighted with the hen house and the run,and so pleased we had the 9ft run, it is certainly worth the extra. It Would be good if there was a covered area to keep the food dry and it seems a bit of a disadvantage to have to take the whole back off each time to collect the eggs but on the whole it is really good.
