Chicken Wagon

Chicken Wagon made from recycled plastic and available in four colours.

Design features:

  • Suitable for a maximum of up to 6 larger birds or 12 bantams
  • Two individual nest boxes
  • Each nest box has roll-away nest box inserts to help keep the eggs clean
  • Once the eggs are laid, they roll backwards into a collecting area which is covered by a flap
  • Two removable perches
  • Quick & easy access to the nest box

Access to inspect the birds can be gained via a full height front door which can be quickly opened, yet securely fastened in just a few seconds.

Easy access to the collecting area is provided by a lockable sliding cover at the rear of the house.

Cleaning

The nest boxes can be easily removed and easy access makes regular cleaning a breeze.

There are a few crevices for pests (such as red mite) to hide in, and the house can be thoroughly cleaned very easily – in seconds if you have a pressure washer and it will dry out very quickly.  

Ventilation

Permanent ventilation is provided under the roof at the front, with two additional fully adjustable circular vents at the back, so the house remains surprisingly cool, even in strong, direct summer sunlight.

Maintenance

Being plastic, the house requires no routine maintenance.

Recycled Plastic

This chicken wagon is manufactured from flat sheets (2.4 x 1.2 m) of recycled plastic, typically 6, 9 or 12 mm thick, sourced from a plastic recycler.

Standard sheets are black in colour. A thin coating can be applied during manufacture to provide a coloured surface on one side. Additives are used to make the plastic ‘UV stable’, to minimise colour fade when exposed to sunlight. Sheets are smooth on one side and have a lightly textured ‘hatch’ pattern on the other.

The recycled plastic is made entirely from used food-grade plastic, primarily post-industrial waste. All plastic waste from the manufacturing process is returned for recycling to make more plastic sheet – this makes manufacture almost a zero waste process.

Some of the off-cut plastic is recycled to make the small 'Pi Clips' supplied to hold the houses together. The metal fasteners are made from stainless steel or other rustproof alloys, to provide a long outdoor life. Being metal, they can all be recycled.
