Omlet Cube Chicken Houses

Friday, November 26th, 2010

With the cold weather now taking full control, in the same way that we humans like to escape the weather, your chickens are no different. They also need a warm, dry home for shelter in order to be protected against all of the elements the winter weather will throw at them. Therefore, we at Cotswolds Chickens stock only the best chicken houses on the market, and the Omlet Cube range is particularly effective in providing the ideal home for chickens in your garden.

Suitable for housing up to ten chickens, the Omlet Cube chicken house from our selection at Cotswold Chickens is perfect as a standalone structure that is easily incorporated into your existing chicken run or fenced off area. Whether you own 3, 5, 8 or 10 chickens, you can customise to suit your needs thanks to its highly flexible design features.

This particular range of chicken house also makes life easy for you when it comes to cleaning out and ensuring your chickens are protected. With slide out dropping trays and hose clean surfaces, the maintenance of your chickens will be completed in half the time of the more traditional house, leaving you more time to enjoy the pleasure of keeping chickens in your garden.

For the protection of your chickens, the Omlet Cube has the innovative ‘No Foxes Allowed’ features, with wire caging surrounding the outer area of the house and a strong, reliable structure for the chickens to sleep in, so you can rest assured of their safety at all times.

Ideal for keeping them warm and secure in the winter and cooler in the summer thanks to its twin walled insulation system, the Omlet Cube is sure to be a welcome addition for your chickens this winter. To contact us at Cotswold Chickens into the availability of this range of chicken houses or to order one to collect for your garden, give our friendly and helpful team a call today.
