Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for Flyte Aviary Coops
Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for Flyte Aviary Coops Flyte Aviary 4, 6, 8 and Aviary Grand.
To create a permanent position for your chicken run why not consider this package to make a secure, fox-proof, level base for your Aviary Coop, by raising it on a timber plinth, and filling the inside surface with hardwood woodchip.
The Timber Sleepers don't have to be set down or 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 to make them level, and making them level is important to the stability of the run.READ MORE
The packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in, to build a raised plinth that includes sufficient bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean surface for the hens.
Aviary 4 and 6 Coops Max. external measurements of plinth (footprint): 2500mm x 1220mm
Aviary 8 Coop Max. external measurements of plinth (footprint): 4180mm x 1220mm
Aviary Grand Coop Max. external measurements of plinth (footprint): 4180mm x 2190mm
The hardwood woodchip is an excellent, hygienic, surface for the birds - almost self-cleaning. Just wash through with a garden hose if we haven't had any rain, renew it perhaps twice a year, and liberally scatter some powder disinfectant like the FSF Run Sanitiser, over it once a month to keep it fresh.
Much more healthy than bare soil for the birds, and much less smelly too. The woodchip can be placed directly onto the ground, we do not recommend a geotextile underlay (not hygienic and the hens will dig it up).
Sorry to say … due to the huge increase in timber sleeper prices over recent months (up 63%), we have had to increase the prices of the Sleeper Packs but have tried to absorb as much as possible. Equally, due to high demand, the delivery times are longer than normal. Currently (Nov 2021) there are no indications that these prices will go back down before Spring 2022.
Delivery is via 7.5t Palletline Transport lorry. If ordered with your Henhouse they will all arrive together with you main order - if ordered separately then delivery cost approx £39.95 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.
