Key Facts About Henny Penny Hen Houses

  •  Every Henny Penny product is built individually by craftsmen in Yorkshire and has a unique build number displayed on a plaque above the door.


  • The core values of Henny Penny Hen Houses are quality, aspirational design, durability and practicality.


  • All our chicken coops are test-driven by our own ex-battery hens and made from sustainable Scandinavian Redwood. 


  • We only use timber from sustainable sources which we pressure-treat with Tanalite, which is safe and eco-friendly for animals and birds.


  • We only use galvanised or stainless steel fittings and mesh that are super-strong and will maintain their ‘as new’ appearance for many years to come - this includes all screws, nails, bolts and hinges. 


  • Henny Penny Hen Houses are the ultimate des res for your chicken. The roofs have marine quality plywood underneath the natural thatch material for longevity and to help eradicate red mite. 


  • Despite being fox and badger proof Henny Penny Hen Houses have excellent ventilation that is adjustable to control humidity.


  • The finishing touch to this unique hen accommodation is its kite-marked thatched roof made from purely natural materials and sealed with two coats of yacht varnish. 


  • Henny Penny Hen Houses have an estimated lifespan of between 10 and 15 years. All come with a multi-year warranty and a 30-day money-back guarantee.


  • There are over four times more chickens than there are humans alive in the world today: approximately 25 billion. 


  • Henny Penny is a proud supporter of the British Hen Welfare Trust which rehomes up to 60,000 caged hens every year to enjoy a free-range retirement. 


  • Chickens are the T-Rex’s closest living relative. 


  • One study conducted by Mother Earth News showed that eggs laid by pasture-fed free range chickens could contain up to one-third less cholesterol and one-quarter less saturated fat than those laid by caged, commercial hens. 


  • Chickens are social animals and don’t thrive if they are alone. Most people keep at least three chickens rather than just two, in case something happens to one of them. 


  • The number of eggs a chicken will produce depends on breed and age but you can expect around 250-300 per year from a healthy hen. Production decreases approximately 10% per bird per year, on average.
