The Stables Chicken Ark
The Stables Chicken Ark is an attractive, practical hen house, handmade from quality materials and really built to last.
Built to last
As with all of our products, The Stables Chicken Ark is hand made from quality timber, screwed together with Zinc plated screws and fitted with heavy duty, galvanized hinges, bolts and fasteners. This all helps to ensure that "The Stables Chicken Ark" will be serving you and your chickens well for many years to come.
The stables chicken Ark is coated as standard with multiple coats of new formula Creocote, an excellent wood preservative. As an alternative we can protect the Stables Chicken Ark with the totally environmentally friendly 'Green Leaf' wood preservative and/or a selection of Coloured finishes (See the menu to the right).
The Stables Chicken Ark has been carefully and thoughtfully designed to make sure that it is easily accessible and a joy to live with. The roof opens and the side hinges down to allow easy access for egg collecting and plenty for space for cleaning. The internal perches and nest box lift out further aiding cleaning.
A Hen House on Wheels
Starting from just £65 wheels are an optional extra for the Stables Chicken Ark. High quality, heavy duty and smart looking rubber/plastic wheels are used for longevity. The first option, 2 wheels and a rear handle make manoeuvring it around a yard or garden a breeze. For a little more you can opt for 4 wheels, ideal if you are moving it longer distances. The added bonus of the wheels is that they make an already attractive Hen House look even more impressive.

- 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.
