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 phenol-faced plywood underneath the natural thatch material 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 House prices start from £445 and 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.
