It’s no surprise that in a recent survey our customers voted the Sussex Chicken House as one of the best coops for their beloved hens and now with the addition of this spacious run, we believe we have developed the ideal home for the happy chicken.

Chicken House Run

The Sussex Chicken House and run is aesthetically pleasing whilst being strong and sturdy. The add on run now means that you have over 23 square feet of secure run space.

We've also designed the side run to be extendable - so you always have the option of increasing the amount of space you can give your hens without any hassle or major D.I.Y skills.

Sussex Chicken House Run

Made from high quality timber, each piece of wood is carefully planed to avoid any splintering. The higher grade wire of the run ensures the chickens are free from intruders such as foxes and rodents.

Our stainless steel rust proof locks add to your chicken’s security and the long slanting roof makes this chicken coop stay clean and dry in any adverse weather conditions.

Easy Clean Chicken House

We strive to source only the best materials and most convenient methods for our customers, and we believe the Sussex Chicken House with Run meets every expectation, with an easy clean pull out tray, unboltable nesting box and multiple access points for collecting or checking on your chickens, you will be amazed at the simple yet sturdy design.

The large front door of the run allows adults and children to gain easy access, changing water and feeding or treating has never been so simple.

"I would definitely recommend you."

I was very impressed with your service. Although one of the parts arrived damaged, you sent a replacement which arrived the next day. I cannot fault your company for service and I would definitely recommend you.

"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.

"Could not be happier"

Thanks so much for the amazing hen house, we are 110% happy with everything you sent us. We are first timers to chickens, we have 3 warrens in our hen house now and they are lovely. Kids are loving them and so are we.

Hen house is beautiful and so cosy looking. Hens are very happy and safe in there. Your product is excellent, delivery was no problem, building it was very easy. Could not be happier.

"Had our first eggs this morning"

I have been very happy with the service from you guys and having now built my coop I am very happy with the quality of the product. It has also been a great help to read your guide and my children have also read with interest all the things that need to be done to make the chickens life an enjoyable one. We are now the proud owners of 4 Warrens and have had our first eggs this morning so all is good. Thank you for all your help.

Chicken Houses Runs Review

1.How many hens can the Sussex with 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 Run then 2 - 3 medium sized hens would be our recommendation.

If you are thinking about investing in the Sussex with Double Run then you can increase that number to 4 hens and they 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.


5.Can I add a run 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 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 wont 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.
