Coop Designs

 

Coop Design 1.

Our original coops are handcrafted in the village using carefully selected materials and our own design to optimise for both the comfort and safety of our hens.

Measurements (assembled): 4 ft w x 8 ft l x 4 ft 10" h

We also keep a stock of Omlet Eglu coops, which pack down well for those wishing to collect from the farm.
