The Croft

The Croft is a country idyll for your feathered friends. This charming design is based on a classic farmhouse with our trademark thatched roof and a front door so you can pop in to tend your hen’s needs. The toughened glass windows allow light to flow in so your chickens can rise with the dawn and go to sleep naturally with the setting sun. The Croft accommodates up to six large hens. Its quirky appearance belies a sophisticated design and clever features that make chicken keeping a joy for both man and bird.

The Croft is our next level hen house, hand-made by our team of craftsmen using only the finest materials in our workshop in rural North Yorkshire.  The chicken’s health and comfort is the heart of our design process and we choose the best materials for the job.  We use best quality redwood shiplap for its strength and durability.  To extend the coop’s lifespan the wood is pressure treated with Tanalith, which is eco-friendly and safe for animals. Excellent ventilation control keeps the coop fresh and dry. This cozy house is draft free making sure that your girls will be safe and warm come rain or storm.

The Croft

All our coops are designed and built to last. We use galvanised steel fittings as standard. All coops are secured with screws for extra strength and safety. The roof is lined with marine quality plywood for longevity and to help eradicate pests such as red mite.

The Croft is fitted with raised wooden skids, which makes moving your coop around easy and keeps the floor dry and protected.  We can fit cast iron wheels for an additional charge. A full sized front door allows easy access for cleaning.  Dropdown ladder or pop-hole doors provide easy exit and entry for your chickens.

Inside it is a perfect chicken boudoir with the removable nesting perches that are raised and perfectly rounded off for your chicken’s comfort and support so they can get a good night’s sleep. The spacious interior has an adjustable ventilation system to keep your girls healthy.

Children are always thrilled when they collect their first egg and love watching their hens sitting happily on their cosy straw nests. However, chickens don’t lay to a schedule. So we have a hi-tech/low tech solution to this problem. We have fitted a special platform where you can install a web-cam so that you never miss an egg drop! Your web-cam can stream these magic moments in your chickens’ lives to your computer, tablet or smartphone anytime, anywhere in the world! It’s like having your own reality TV show but better, everyone’s a winner and you get eggs for breakfast.

Once your girls are happily laying eggs, the nesting boxes are designed for easy collecting. The nesting box is fully lockable and secure so a hungry Mr Fox won’t be able to feast on free-range chicken and eggs.
