This ark is 3ft long x 3ft wide x 3ft high, this is the recommended size for 7 chickens also has one external nest box which free range regulations advise one nest box for 7 hens.
The nest box has hinged drop down front and is secured via a shute bolt, it can also be removed from ark by removing four screws.
The floor is made from 12mm ply which sits on 75x50mm bearers so is raised 3 inches off the floor to stop rodents nesting underneath and to make it easier to push around.
The framing is 45x45mm so is strong and sturdy and screwed together using 4” screws.
The boards used are 15mm high quality tanilised redwood shiplap and nailed to frame with 2” galvanised nails.
