In our article Chicken Coop
we looked at a few of the options available for housing poultry
. In this article we will look specifically at the Eco Hen Ark
- a hen house made from heavy duty recycled plastic collected from farms around the UK.
Plastic construction means that the Eco Hen Ark
has excellent insulation
qualities like wood, but is far easier to keep clean, will last much longer with virtually zero maintenance, and is very strong and fox and other pest proof. The chance of a mite infestation
is greatly reduced compared to a standard wooden chicken coop.
The Eco Hen Ark is fitted with adjustable air vents
at both ends to prevent it getting too hot in the summer, or too cold and draughty in the winter. The small front door slides up and down using a lever, and there is a large back door which makes it easy for you to get to the eggs laid by your hens and the two detachable nesting boxes
included with the Ark.
The Eco Hen Ark provides an internal area of 20 square feet
, and a fox-proof galvanised 4 foot long run
is also available for an additional charge which clips onto the Ark providing 10 square feet of external protected area.
Buy an Eco Hen Ark
The Eco Hen Ark
is sold for around £400
plus a further £70 if you want the 4 foot long run as well.
The Eco Hen Ark is sold with a 12 month guarantee
and is typically delivered in under two weeks
after ordering with free delivery
to most of the UK, and a small additional delivery charge for remote and non-inland locations.
