Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for Hobby Henhouse


Sleeper & Woodchip Packs for the Hobby Henhouse & Run. For the Hobby with 6ft and 9ft Runs.

The Pack contains a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in (250mm x 125mm), to build a raised plinth for the Run frame with large timber 'pads' for the feet of the Hobby House and, in the case of the 6ft run, 2 bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean, perfect surface for the hens. The 9ft Run includes 3 bags of Woodchip.



The Timber Sleepers are tanalised softwood, they don't have to be dug into the ground, they are just as effective placed on top of the grass/ground - although, you may find you need to dig them in a few inches to make them level, and making them level is important to the stability of the run.

For the Hobby Henhouse with 6ft Run - Max.external dimensions of the plinth frame: 2280mm long by 940mm wide.
Hobby Henhouse with 9ft Run - Max.external dimensions of the plinth frame: 3240mm long by 940mm wide.

The hardwood woodchip is an excellent, hygienic, surface for the birds - almost self-cleaning when it rains. If necessary though, just rake and rinse through with a garden hose, refresh the woodchip with new perhaps twice a year, and also scatter some powder disinfectant over it once a month to keep it fresh. Much more healthy than bare soil for the birds, and less smelly too.

The Sleepers are cut to the lengths required, the max. length of any single sleeper is 4ft (1220mm), a detailed layout plan is included. The woodchip can be placed directly on to the ground, we do not recommend a geotextile underlay, not only for reasons of hygiene, as the 'poo' will not wash/drain through it, but also the hens will dig it up.


Delivery is via 7.5t Palletline Transport lorry. If ordered with your Henhouse they will all arrive together with your main order - if ordered separately then delivery costs start at £49.00 to most of mainland England, other parts of the UK may be slightly more. Calculated on weight and postcode destination.

For more details about pallet deliveries please see our Delivery Information page.
