The Eco Hen Loft is a variation on the poplular Solway Mini Hen Coop. The Eco Hen Loft is made from 100% recycled plastic so will not rot and will prevent the build up of red mites. While we cannot guarantee red mite will not find a home on your hen house the plastic does not allow red mites to penetrate unlike wood. A great starter coop ideal for housing up to 4 birds.

The removable roof combined with the easy clean plastic makes the eco hen loft childsplay to maintain.

The eco hen loft is up off the ground on legs. These legs are adjustable to suit your desired height. The height of the legs can make the base of your loft anything between 0 - 150mm from the ground.

The external nest boxes make retrieving eggs easy with no need for back breaking crawling into houses. Simply unclip the plastic curl pin, slide back the nest box roof and you have access to the eggs.

The door has an open/ closing mechanism that is hidden when the door is open and the ramp down. This is all attached to the eco hen loft making for easy moving. The locking mechanism simply twists horizontal to lock the door shut. Swivelling the lock vertically means it is hidden underneath the door when it is down.

Your coop will be fully built on site and will require no further assembly when you get it delivered simply clip the nesting boxes into place and it's ready for your chickens.

The eco hen loft is available in green, red, black or grey. It has two perches with more than enough space for your birds to sit on.

The eco hen loft does not need treating so it is as low maintenance as possible.

The eco hen loft has 447 x 834mm or 0.37 square metres of internal floor space which is ideal for housing for up to 4 birds. The eco loft can be between 800mm and 1000mm in height depending on the height of the adjustable legs. The actual size of the Eco Hen Loft is 1220mm wide (with 2 nest boxes attached) x 1020mm length and weighs approx 25kgs.

We can now add an additional nesting box if you would prefer your coop to have a second nesting box please select the number of nesting boxes from the drop down menu.

Definitely go for it, They are great entertaining pet that also provide food, here are mine free ranging in the front garden, notice the low fence but they don't bother trying to escape as they have plenty of room so are happy where they are.

Here is the run and coop. Don't but a wooden coop as they are harder to keep clean.

Also for anyone that rents there home and thinks they can not keep chickens please note the garden and allotments act 1950. Providing there are no convents on the property which is unlikely then even a private landlord or housing association should not stop you keeping hens.

(1)Notwithstanding any provision to the contrary in any lease or tenancy or in any covenant, contract or undertaking relating to the use to be made of any land, it shall be lawful for the occupier of any land to keep, otherwise than by way of trade or business, hens or rabbits in any place on the land and to erect or place and maintain such buildings or structures on the land as reasonably necessary for that purpose:
Provided that nothing in this subsection shall authorise any hens or rabbits to be kept in such a place or in such a manner as to be prejudicial to health or a nuisance or affect the operation of any enactment."

Take it you don't have a garden because if you have then what is stopping you?
Would this not need to be lined to stop condensation off the roof and the walls last things chickens want is to be damp or even the condensation turning to ice in cold weather ? most of the coups I have seen or worked with have been wooden felt roofed

Plastic easier to clean and also less likely to attract red mites as their is less cracks for them to seek refuge. You can also jet wash the plastic coop every few months to get it back like new, the other main bonus being that this plastic coop will last a lifetime unlike wooden coops so are a great investment.

Had mine 3 years and not had a condensation issue and the hay stays dry. They are fairly well ventilated so maybe that is why I have had no issues, their is also an adjustable vent on the back of the coop to increase ventilation if required. greenfrogdesigns.co.uk/blo…se/

Urban foxes getting through the back fence - coop looks good though but even if I had no fox problem here, don't think I'd be able to keep up with the maintenance. I'll stick to Stardew Valley.

Nice garden dont people try to come and steal your chickens:/
We keep hens and a plastic coop is definitely the best and most hygienic option as mites can easily infest wood and they bite the poor hens. They are a nightmare to get rid of once you have an infestation and I've heard people have had to burn wooden coops as no matter how much you treat them, the mites can survive in cracks and under felt.

This is the coop we have.

£225 for recycled plastic?
Why are recycled things so expensive, kind of defeats the object imho
I love the plastic ones, easier to clean and to treat for red mite. I have an Eglu one which has a cavity for insulation but much more expensive. my hens are not in their fourth year and no longer lay every day but they are lovely pets and you are never alone in the garden as they love to come over and "help". Also plastic coops above ground make it easier to deal with the other visitors you get if you dont tidy food up well - Rats!

Put solar panels on it for eco friendly lighting inside.
When the sun is down then use battery hens to provide the power...
