DETAILED INFO:

MATERIALS:

The Siberian Larch - not to be compared with the Native Larch - approximates the luxury of oak, because:

• It is sustainable;

• It can be used outdoors without treatment;

• It has good abrasion resistance.

• 21mm planks!

    

Siberian larch comes from Russia. A different kind of larch trees grows there. In addition, the very cold climate ensures that the trees grow more slowly. This combination leads to a very durable softwood species! The Siberian larch has a lifespan of up to 20 years. That is about twice as long as that of European larch wood. Siberian larch is notable for its yellow color, clear flame markings. You often see this type of wood as a patio board and facade cladding.

We buy the wood directly from the impoteur who specializes in Siberian Larch, he processes and dries it with craftsmanship!

EDIT:

We always install the planks according to these guidelines;

• Glues with a D4 glue (moisture resistant glue)

• Nailed with DA nails, this nail contains glue that melts by the heat of the nail gun so that the nail can never come loose!

EXTRA OPTIONS*:

• Integrated anti-fox hatch: (ChickenGuard premium)

• External shelf

With or without anti-fox flap?

Optionally, you can provide your chicken coop with an integrated anti-fox hatch. The fox hatch closes at nightfall (when the chickens enter) and opens with a timer, for example 8:30 am, so the fox has no chance. And your cock won't wake you up anymore :-)

With or without a tray?

Optionally, you can equip your chicken coop with an external laying tray, so the chickens can lay their eggs in the dark, whatever they prefer!

* The external laying box, anti-fox hatch and the assembly of the loft are a paying option; see options with your order!

 

 

DELIVERY AND INSTALLATION

 

We supply all our chicken coops all over Europe.

The chicken coop will be delivered to your home on a pallet by our transporter!

The chicken coop is pre-assembled so that you no longer have to do this yourself, the disassembled version comes with a handy plan!

 

You only place 4 tiles on a flat solid surface, then you put the loft on the tiles with 2 people. (2 persons for the medium loft, 3 persons for the large loft)

 

Do you live in a row house? please take the disassembled version.

comes with a handy “ikea plan”! You just have to attach the panels together!

 

On request we will also place this chicken coop at your home. Contact us for a tailor-made offer.

 

 

NOT CONVINCED YET?

 

Why are the chicken coops more expensive than a coop from the store?

Lukas wants to have the best and the most beautiful chicken coops that his customers enjoy for years and quality has its price;

The chicken coops are made of the best materials!

 

  • 21mm thick planks of more expensive luxury wood

  • the construction consists of 45X45mm beams

  • the chicken coop has more than 100 parts

  • the fasteners; consist of Inox

  • made in Belgium (not in China or eastern bloc countries)

 

 

FOR THE FANS:

Why do chicken house prices rise every six months?

 

Because the prices of wood, screws, glues, transport, ... are becoming more and more expensive, we unfortunately have to include this in our prices, so we remain profitable and we can also build a fantastic chicken coop for your children later on.

 

And finally; how much time does it take to make a chicken coop?

We work an average of two working days on a medium loft!
