Keeping your own chickens is both a rewarding and fun hobby. Despite the obvious benefits (such as never having to buy eggs again!), you’ll be able to enjoy having a flock of lively chickens, which will keep you and your family entertained for hours, every single day. One of the most exciting parts of buying your own chickens, is making sure they have all the right accessories to help them settle into their new home. Here at Cotswold Chickens, we provide the best and most appealing chicken houses, to make sure that your hens are the happiest they can be in their new environment.

Whether you’re looking for a small, quaint chicken house, or a larger pen where your hens will have more freedom to roam around, our handpicked range of some of the best houses on the market will guarantee your selection to allow the greatest benefits for your chickens. We stock a variety of different brands and styles, which enables both first time chicken buyers and poultry veterans alike, to reap the advantages of a varied and high quality collection.

One of the designs which we supply is the versatile Omlet Eglu Classic. This futuristic chicken house combines style and practicality, to bring you a modern solution to the traditional wooden home. As an up-to-date option for those looking to give their chickens an edgier home, the Eglu provides a spacious open plan living area, capable of holding 2-4 medium sized chickens.

The Eglu’s clever insulation system keeps your chickens warm and cosy in the winter, whilst providing a cool shelter in the hot summer season. It also has roosting bars fitted throughout, and contains an integrated nesting box with an additional eggport, to make collecting your eggs both fun and easy!
