Resort Chicken Coop / Hen House With Extra Long Run

Your chickens need to be healthy and happy so that they produce lovely eggs and remain in great shape but keeping chickens doesn’t have to be hard work.

The new Somerzby Resort chicken coop comes with an extra long run and meets the highest standards of even the fussiest chickens.

The Resort is packed full of features that make chickens lives more comfortable and your job of looking after them easier.

The Resort takes all of the stress out of setting up your new chickens in a really comfortable environment.

And the Resort chicken house meets all of the Council requirements for a healthy chicken house including height restrictions.

Somerzby Resort accommodates up to 14 chickens

How Big Should A Well - Designed Chicken Coop Be?

Chickens are usually quite comfortable nesting in reasonably close quarters but they still need plenty of space to avoid ruffling a few feathers.

The hen house measures 1570mm high x 1200mm wide and means that the Somerzby Resort is large enough to easily accommodate 10 chickens (the limit for urban areas under most NSW Council jurisdictions) but could accommodate up to 14 very contented chickens.


The run measuring 3300mm long x 1434mm high x 1033mm wide adds a large area for your hens to freely roam around engaging in normal chicken scratching and foraging behaviours while preventing them from flying into the neighbours and keeping them safe from mice, snakes, and cats.

And the peaked roof gives additional room as well as making it easier for you to move around inside the run.

Huge nesting boxes so you get plenty of eggs.

Does It Have Separate Nesting Boxes?

The Somerzby Resort has two nest boxes with six nesting spaces. They are placed well above the ground keeping your hens free from the harmful effects of damp ground.

The height of the nesting boxes and the convenient lid providing convenient access from outside the coop makes it so easy to gather their daily egg deliveries.

Seven perches means there are plenty of perching areas to enable your chickens to get a bird’s eye view of things.

Somerzby Chicken Coops are easy to clean

Is It Easy To Clean?

This is probably the chicken lover’s least favoured job but the Resort has some features that mean even your kids will be happy to help with cleaning the coop.

You don’t even have to go in the coop for basic cleaning jobs.

  • Pull out metal tray for simple no-fuss removal of chicken poo and for replacing bedding
  • Two large access doors allow easy access to run
  • External access to nesting boxes
  • Large access door at a convenient height gives access to the coop
Plastic rain shields keeping the chickens nice and dry

Will It Keep My Chickens Dry?

The Resort is designed for Australian conditions to keep your chickens dry and warm in winter and cool in summer.

The chimney and additional mesh-covered ventilation windows with sliding covers allow extra ventilation in the warmer months or can be closed to prevent windblown rain and cold draughts from entering during the wetter periods. Plastic rain shield on nest boxes.

The coop is placed will above the ground keeping your hens away from cold damp ground conditions.

What Other Great Features Does It Have?

The Resort extra large chicken coop and run is just packed with other great features as well including:

  • Extra wide ramp
  • External metal rod to open and shut door to the house
  • Stylish chimney that looks great and gives ventilation when needed
  • Two access doors providing easy access to the run

What’s It Made Of?

The Resort is made from rot resistant Chinese fir treated with a non-toxic water-based stain.

Fir is well-known for its strength and resilience and the green and golden brown non-toxic stain helps protect the wood and yet is still safe for children to handle.

Galvanised 10mm x 10mm wire mesh keeps your chooks safe from predators including cats, mice, snakes, and mice.

Solid construction gives the Resort real lasting strength.

Couldn’t I Make My Own?

Yes, you could but it will be more expensive and time-consuming than buying a Somerzby Resort extra large chicken coop and run.

Comes as a flat pack containing 5 easily manageable cartons and comes with everything you need for fast straightforward assembly - it couldn’t be easier.

All the materials including hinges and screws are provided along with clear instructions for assembly.

Maintenance is minimal—perhaps the occasional drop of oil on the hinges is about it.

The dimensions of the five cartons are:

- 1410mm x 1070 x 120 -20.5Kg

- 1150 x 830 x 160 - 19Kg

- 1135 x 830 x 150 - 19.5Kg

- 1660 x 635 x 140 - 20Kg

- 1260 x 1035 x 95 - 17Kg

The Somerzby extra large Resort chicken coop and run makes keeping and nurturing your home range chooks so easy. Give yourself and your chickens a real break with the Resort.
