The Paddock Hen House
The Paddock Hen house is ideal for those with larger flocks. It comes in standard sizes for 12, 18, 25 or 35 birds. Its external nestboxes and large, sturdy, hinged roof section make for quick and easy access for egg collecting and cleaning.
Robust & Functional
As with all of our products, The Paddock Hen House is designed and built to last. We use high quality Red Pine timber and Zinc plated screws to hold it all together. The floor is made from 18mm exterior quality ply. All of the wood used is treated with your choice of 'New Formula Creocote' of the totally environmentally friendly 'Green Leaf' wood preservative. Heavy duty galvanised bolts and fastenings keep everything closed and fox proof and the same quality of hinges ensure long term easy opening.
Skids & Wheels
All Paddock Hen Houses come on skids as standard and have a tow hook at one end. As an optional extra, heavy duty, long lasting and smart looking plastic and rubber wheels are available. This option is recommended if these large and heavy houses are to be moved on a regular basis!
There are some differences between the sizes of Paddock House. The 12 and 18 bird sizes have single pop hole openings where as the larger sizes have two and course the nest boxes differ in size and quantity. There are other differances as well, some depending upon the options you choose when ordering, and all are to ensure that this large hen house is functional, robust, easy to live with and that it will be serving you well for many, many years to come.

- Finishing Info
We want to make sure that our hen houses will be serving you well for many years to come. That is why we offer a choice of timber treatment on all of our timber products.
Our Standard Treatment
All of the timber we use is clear pressure treated. On top of this our standard treatment is 'Creocote', the new version of Creosote wood preservative. This colours the wood nicely bringing out the grain as well as helping to keep Red Mite at bay. Each product treated with Creocote gets multiple coats internally and externally and should not need re-coating for at least a couple of years, at which point it is easily available and very easy to apply (When re-coating the interior, which should help keep Red Mite at bay, chickens should be kept elsewhere of 4-7 days)
Custom Colour Finishes
Using Cupronol Garden Shades
Some of our products can have custom colour finishes.
If you would like you hen house coloured we will apply 3 coats of Cupronol Garden Shades as we hand build it for you. Three coats ensures the wood is well protected and provides an excellent finished surface quality. We use a well know brand of 'paint' so that in a few years time when the house could do with a touch up it will be easy for you to find the matching colour.
