We already have an Eglu classic, which we like, but aiming to buy more hens next year so need a larger coop and run. Does anyone have a Solway chicken house?

I've seen them in RL if that helps? We thought they looked like they could be cold. I liked that they came apart easily but dh thought it left gaps.

Thank you for your very helpful reply. It seems we might be looking for something a little less draughty Smile

Hi there, I have a Solway coop. It came mostly assembled which means it didn't fit through my front door. You can't easily just take bits off as it's actually mostly bolted together. The bits left to assemble were so tight fitting that at one point I was worried that I wouldn't be able to put it together but eventually I managed it and my chooks seem quite happy in there. We got one with two perches and a solid floor.
