COVID-19 Update January 26th: Due to the ongoing pandemic we are experiencing unprecedented demand for our buildings. Our current lead time is 10 - 12 weeks from order to delivery. We appreciate this is a long time and we are doing our best to reduce this. If collection from our workshop is possible, we may be able to have your building ready sooner. We cannot thank you enough for your interest in our buildings and your continued support and understanding during this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to contact the office for further information.

The Birchwood

The Birchwood layer can be made to suit your requirements to house up to 500 free range layers.

The house photographed will accommodate up to 250 free range chickens. It is 24' x 14' + a 4' egg packing room. 

It has a tama slatted floor under the perching area and a solid wooden floor in the main house for scratching requirements. 

The perching area hooks up and is completely removable for easy cleaning. There are cleaning shutters at the back of the house that can be hooked up for cleaning.

The nest boxes are roll away, the eggs roll back onto a conveyor which you then turn manually from the outside, or from the egg packing room (if you have one) to collect the eggs. The nest boxes can be closed at night by either a manual system, or an automated system. 

This particular house is built on 3 metal skids so that it can be towed. We can build them with or without the skids.

Please enquire for more details and prices on this house and we will do our best to tailor a quote to meet your needs.

Delivery timescale on this house is a minimum of 6 weeks as the nest boxes come from Italy.
