Small Chicken Loft

Small chicken loft made from recycled plastic and available in four colours.

Design features:

  • Made primarily from 9mm thick recycled polyethylene
  • Suitable for a maximum of 6 larger birds or 10 bantams
  • Two removable perches
  • Two nest boxes
  • Door design means it won’t trap dirt in the door slots
  • Quick & easy access to the nest box

Access to inspect the birds can be gained via a full width back door which detaches using quick release pins. When the door is removed, there is no ‘lip’ on the floor edge.

Cleaning

The roof removes in seconds allowing easy access for cleaning. To clean the nest box simply remove two quick release pins and lift off the lid. The entire nest box can be completely removed for cleaning by undoing more quick release pins.

There 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

This chicken loft has permanent under-eave ventilation, as well as two adjustable circular vents. Even though the sides are made from black plastic, the house remains surprisingly cool, even in strong, direct summer sunlight.

  • Overall dimensions: 146 (w) x 118 (h) x 187 (d) cm (including ramp, roof overhang and nest boxes)

ADD TO BASKET

Construction

The chicken loft is delivered flat-packed and can be quickly assembled by following the comprehensive instructions in our User Guide - you should allow about an hour for this if it is the first time you have assembled one of our houses.

Most parts are held together using clips made from our own waste plastic, though quick release clips (linch pins) and some other parts are metal.

Maintenance

Being plastic, the house requires no routine maintenance.

Recycled Plastic

This chicken loft 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.
