As one of our bestselling quality chicken coops, the Sussex Chicken House with Double Run exceeds expectations as it delivers on quality and security.

This is the ideal home for chickens that need to be kept enclosed as they have ample space to forage and play without needing to ramble around the garden.

Your chickens will enjoy the freedom of the large run that is attached to the coop, allowing for free range roaming whilst keeping them safe and secure.

We have carefully sourced wire of a higher grade to decrease the chances of would be intruders gaining access, letting you relax safe in the knowledge that your hens are enjoying the best protection available.

The double run can also be further extended, allowing you to increase your brood or simply offer even more secure free range foraging to your chickens.

Made from high quality wood with sturdy joints each piece of wood is planed to perfection in order to eliminate splintering and cracks. The wood is also treated on site with a preservative that gives a warm natural glow, whilst the long slanting roof ensures chickens stay warm and dry no matter what the weather.

With multiple large access points on the long run, you can comfortably change the water, check your chickens, or feed with the minimum of disturbance to your pets.

Each of the doors to the extended run have been fitted with stainless steel locks, adding extra security to your chickens' home.

We believe convenience is the key to cleaning a chicken coop and that is why the Sussex Chicken House has a handy pull out tray that allows quick removal of soiled bedding, a nesting box that can be unbolted to give you complete access to the housing areas as well as a front door which gives you another access point.

All these handy features have been especially designed to help you easily maintain your coop and chickens.

Every one of our houses is delivered in flat pack form with clear and simple instructions; our customer feedback proves these are easy to follow allowing for a quick assembly.



Must say how impressed we were with the quality of the Sussex coop. Excellent and our 3 new chickens are doing well.

Sussex Chicken House Review
By Steve Pontin - Trefriw, Conwy

"Everything fitted together so well."

I received my Sussex coop with double runs today, just as stated. It is a pleasure to deal with such a competent company. I made an error with my evening order (ordered one run instead of two) and after contacting by email the next morning, it was rectified and arrived the next working day. It was so simple to assemble, with easy to understand instructions. Hubby went off to a doctor's appointment, and I had the hen house assembled by the time he got back, half an hour later. Everything fitted together so well and nothing damaged or missing. I will definitely recommend to others.

"I am over the moon, it looks fantastic!"

Thank you so much for all you patience with me when ordering the Sussex chicken house. I am over the moon, it looks fantastic ! It was delivery very promptly, when you said, and it took me and my husband 35mins to put together from start to finish, with the help of a cordless screwdriver I might add. The instructions were so easy and clear. Well done to you both and once again thanks for all you help. You have taken away my fear of ordering over the internet.

Sussex Chicken House Review
By John Fletcher .- Kettering, Northamptonshire

"Had for a year still looks as good as the newer one."

I am delighted with my Sussex chicken coop. This is the second one I have ordered from you. I ordered it on Sunday night and it arrived on Tuesday on the Isle of Wight! Brilliant. I noticed that you have fixed the one design defect I noticed from the first one I bought and that is making the ladder removable so it's easier to move to coop around. The coops look lovely in our orchard. The older one which we have had for a year still looks as good as the newer one and there is no sign of any deterioration to the wood or roof.

We bought the second coop because one of our hens is broody and is sitting on 6 eggs so we moved the other 2 hens to the new coop which was very easy because both coops are identical and they didn't notice! Thank you so much and thank you for all the additional information you sent about keeping chickens which is really useful.

Chicken Houses Runs Review

1.How many hens can the Sussex with Double Run hold?

It will depend on the breed of chicken and the size of the breed, and also how you intend to keep them.

The raised roosting and nesting area of the Sussex coop will hold 4 to 5 medium sized birds quite comfortably. What is probably more important to consider is the amount of space they will have during the day.

If you intend to give them time to roam around your garden then the run space is less of a determining factor and 4 maybe 5 hens would be fine.

However if they are to spend their entire day inside the Sussex with Double Run then up to 4 hens would be fine.

The benefit of all our coops is that the run can be extended at a later date should the need arise and in theory you can add as many run extensions as you need.

On a side note, we'd recommend that whatever your circumstance and set up if you can give your hens a few hours outside their coop and run in the late afternoon and early evening.

2.Can I set up the Sussex the other way around?

While some customers in the past have set up their coop the other way around, it's not straight forward and would involve a fair bit of D.I.Y to do so.

The Sussex has been designed to be constructed the way it is shown in the photos on our website.

3.Can I fit an Automatic Door Opener to this coop?

No unfortunately not. All the door openers on the market work with doors that open in an up/down direction (pop-hole doors). As the Sussex has a sliding door a door opener would not work.

But the Devon Hen House has be specifically designed so it can be fitted with an automatic door opener. We use and recommend this door opener.


4.Can I move the Sussex Chicken Coop easily?

Yes it can be moved but at almost 50kgs and over 2 meters long you are going to need an extra pair of hands to help you move the Sussex Coop.

If you have a Sussex with Run or Double Run and want to move your coop then the answer would be to first dis-connect the runs from the coop and move each section separately.


5.Can I add more runs at a later stage?

Yes, you can add extra Sussex Runs at any stage and you can join as many runs together to form as long a space as you need. For more information on the Sussex Run by itself click here: Sussex Runs


6.Is the wood treated?

Yes, the Sussex Chicken Coop comes with a base coat treatment of wood preservative

But as with all outdoor wooden structures in our harsh climate, we recommend that the timber be treated on a regular basis to ensure a long life. If the coop is treated to begin with and thereafter on a yearly basis, and is well looked after and cleaned regularly there is no reason why a lifespan of 5 to 7 years could not be expected.

There are many popular products available with Cuprinol , Ronseal and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.

A lot of customers use and recommend these: Brand Option 1 or Brand Option 2


7. Can I use the Sussex with Double Run for rabbits?

While the product has been specifically designed to house chickens a few customers have pruchased the Sussex Chicken Coop for their rabbits and the feedback has been positive.

We also make and sell wide range of well made rabbit hutches and runs: Visit our website:


8. Is the Sussex with Run fox proof?

We would like to think that our coops are made to a higher standard than most other suppliers in this price range. While we have purposely used thicker, sturdier wood, wire and locks with the aim to make it as safe and secure as possible for your chickens we cannot absolutely guarantee that foxes and other predators won’t try and target them.

Foxes are by far the biggest threat that your pets will face so if you are going to keep your chickens then we also urge you to take these added precautions especially if you know you have foxes in your area.

Our wooden coops are treated with a base coat of wood preservative.The wood we use in this product is a highly durable and scented softwood which is noted for its resistance to decay and rot.

As with all outdoor wooden structures we strongly recommend that you treat your coop with a high quality varnish or wood preservative before exposing it to the elements and that you re-treat it at least once a year (preferably before the winter season) to maintain the applied preservative and water repellent properties. There are many popular products available with Cuprinol , Ronseal and Wilkinson amongst the better known brands.

We also recommend that you try and position your chicken coop in a protected area which is not overly exposed to high winds and the elements.
