Looking after our feathered friends!

September 2015 is officially national chicken appreciation month!
Luna has been with us for a few years now and has been a firm favourite with children who like to see her shiny feathers and feed her some grain.
Luna and her friends are housed in luxury accomodation in a timber Hen House which includes a raised floor, single door and separate closing hen access door with ramp.We have a model available on the Taylors Garden Buildings website measuring 6×6 (including the run on the front). The run on the front of the Hen House has galvanised mesh with lockable door to keep them safe inside at night time from any predators who like to visit and have a mooch around. Being surrounded by fields at Woodmeadow it is inevitable that we get the odd late visitor here and there and this hen run gives us confidence that our feathered beauties are safe and sound.
We have had this hen house for as long as we have run Woodmeadow Garden Centre (just over three years) and have had perfectly satisfactory use from it (Luna has certainly never complained – especially in the middle of Winter when she and her colleagues are all tucked away nice and warm in the early hours!).
We also have two more models available on the Taylors website which are manufactured by one of our most successful manufacturers – Rowlinson.
The compartments on both of our Rowlinsonmodels feature removable lids for easy egg collection. The coops have easy access with a slide opening door with hook supports as well as a rear door. For ease of cleaning the coops are fitted with a slide out floor.

The larger of the two models has all the same features as its smaller counterpart but is designed to comfortably house 6 chickens.
Come and take a look – don’t be chicken! (Sorry).
