"Although a chicken house is a functional item, I was impressed with how beautiful this one was also, exquisitely crafted in an attractive timber. Solid, sturdy and aesthetically pleasing, I can't wait to see how the chickens settle into their new home. I was also impressed that the manufacturers were prepared to deliver to Dunedin for just a nominal fee - great service and communication all round." -- Claire L, Dunedin
"Our girls love their bedroom. And it looks very elegant in our garden." -- Nichola, Lyttleton

Composters

composter-barrel-2d

To build this you'll need to scavenge a plastic drum from a local dairy farmer.  It's not difficult to build, and for under $40 you should have a great drum composter.

Raised Beds
raised-bed-2d

This is built from Stuart Timber ColourPine half-rounds (35mm thick).  If your local stuff is different, just modify the dims to suit.

We left the corner stakes poking above the bed for a reason...so you can attach Chicken Tractors, protective screens, or even plastic covered frames as a cloche.

"The coop is great. I have bantams in it and have just hatched a clutch of chickens. Having the two levels has meant I have been able to separate the hen and chicks from the rest which works well as they free range during the day. It is ideal from a security point of view to be able to close the ladder up at night and keep them predator safe and winter warm." -- Jenny, Oamaru
"The coop is fabulous, the chickens arrived...and the chicken supplier was very impressed...I do love showing off my coop to others, I feel like inspector gadget! The people I bought the chickens off weren’t sure they’d find the water or be able to get up to the roost, but they were fine!" -- Bilinda, Dunedin
