There's a Reason Why We Don't Make Small Chicken Houses
At Wells Poultry, we always put the welfare of your birds first, which is why we don't make a small chicken house and run. You see, chickens and other poultry birds are social animals and are happiest when kept in groups, ideally of at least 4 birds. But like us humans, they also become agitated if they don't have enough space, so overcrowding your birds can cause significant problems - if your birds feel crammed in, their mental and physical health could suffer and they may start to fight each other.
The only time we would recommend using a very small coop is if you have a sick bird that needs to be isolated or a bird that needs to be alone to raise chicks. If you are in that situation, please contact us and we will create a suitable coop for you.
If you need a small chicken house because you have limited space available, please take a look at our Monmouth Minor and Sonning Minor
These houses are 1m by 1m or less (excluding nest boxes) and are ideal for a small amount of birds (Monmouth Minor - 8 birds, Sonning Minor - 6 birds). We would not recommend keeping poultry in houses any smaller than these models.
If you have more space available, our Monmouth Midi and Sonning Major
chicken houses are suitable for a larger number of birds. You may even be able to make better use of your space by buying our 3-sided chicken run, which can fit against a wall or fence, and then placing a chicken house inside it.
Of course, if space is not an issue, our large poultry run and house is an excellent home for larger numbers of birds.
