The Long-Legged Maggie's Dozen Hen House for up to 12 birds. Made in Dorset by Flyte so Fancy. Delivered either ready assembled or flat-packed in panels as required.
Elevated to rise above the hustle and bustle of the garden, the extra 24 inches in height given to this Maggie's Henhouse means less bending down is required for egg collection and cleaning whilst the loftiness will also offer your ladies a superb vantage point from which to survey their 'estate' in the morning.
This Tall Maggie's Dozen can accommodate up to 12 laying hens or 8 large fowl and offers a more natural environment for the birds where they can 'go up' to roost at night. This raised platform also allows the underneath of the house to become a space for shelter and shade for the birds during the day.

This is my third maggies long legged coop and I love them. Very well made, sturdy, quality coop and easy to assemble.
I love the fact its so easy to clean out without having to bend down
Good communication about delivery date.
Would highly recommend
This is my 2nd Long Legged Maggies House. they are really well made & stand up to the severe weather on Portland. The ordering & delivering was prompt & efficient. Very pleased. The x-battery girls are very happy in their new house. Thankyou from Gill & the girls.
I would have given this a five star rating, but we did find the instructions a bit confusing and ended up putting sections in the wrong place until we realised! Also, we had to pay quite a bit extra to have a Luton van instead of a lorry, as we live down a fairly small lane.
It would be helpful if the photos were clearly marked A, B etc, and written for people who are VERY USELESS at instructions! However, that said, we constructed it two days ago, with a friend’s help, and the girls really love the fact they can get out at the crack of dawn instead of waiting for us to let them out - we ordered the automatic door thing which a) actually works, and b) is a godsend! - Hurrah! It’s a bit steep for our old hen, especially the last few steps, but again, they love having a proper shelter when it rains. They also love the two-tiered perches, and the space and security the solid build gives them. We ordered the 12 hen house for our five hens, and they love it - we think! Thank you.
The hen house is beautifully made and very solid. The instructions were very simple to follow with both clear photos and a written description. This contrasted with instructions for a hen run from another supplier that only seemed to have hieroglyphics! I sent an email to say that one perch was missing. This was replied to within 5 minutes and I received the perch the next day. This level of service is so rare and made me think of TV programmes about the 1950s..
I wish i’d bought one years ago. Have been using plastic coops for years because I thought they were easier to clean. This Maggie’s coop has been a revelation - super easy to clean - loads more egg laying room for the hens -
And as it can house 12 hens - ended up rescuing another 8. So we now have 12 happy hens, highly recommend this coop and also Flytesofancy - super helpful throughout the process and recommended exactly the right coop for me 👍
