Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for Maggie's 6 Henhouse


A Sleeper & Woodchip Pack for the shorter-legged Maggie's Six Henhouse with a 6ft or 9ft long Run. Shown here with the Long Legged Maggie's Six House & Run.

Hardwood Woodchip is an excellent, hygienic, surface for the birds - almost self-cleaning. Just wash through with a garden hose if you haven't had any rain, refresh with new woodchip perhaps twice a year, and scatter some powder disinfectant over it once a month to keep it bacteria-free and fresh.

Much more healthy than bare soil for the birds, and much less smelly too!



Max. external dimensions of the plinth frame:

  • With 6ft Run: 2140mm long by 1118mm wide. With two bags of Hardwood Woodchip.
  • With 9ft Run: 3080mm long by 1118mm wide. With three bags of Hardwood Woodchip.

The packs contain a set of pressure treated timbers, 10in x 5in, to build a raised plinth for the 6ft Run section, with matching blocks for the feet of the henhouse itself, and bags of hardwood woodchip to create a clean surface for the hens.

The timber sleepers are softwood tanalised - not oak - and will be cut to the lengths required. Comes with an instruction sheet to aid placement.

The woodchip can be placed directly onto the ground/grass, we do not recommend a geotextile underlay, mainly 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 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.
