The Lenham chicken house was launched in 1982, as our customers told us that they'd like to start keeping more chickens. Its classic traditional shape is designed to fit into any garden. It is less space efficient than our Boughton chicken house, which has an integrated run below the house, but it can hold twice the number of chickens and is also suitable for large fowl or cockerels.
Easy to clean - The Lenham is designed to make it quick and simple to clean. For easy access the Lenham chicken house has removable nest boxes, side walls and perches.
Fantastic perches - There are two sets of perches – one on either side of the house. The perches are specially designed to stop chickens being about to get underneath them. This is done using block board which you can see in the picture below. This stops your chickens walking in the droppings and helps reduce disease.
Secure fox-proof house - As with all Forsham chicken houses - the Lenham is secure from foxes. It has strong catches and locks which cannot be opened by Mr Fox.
Easy egg collection - The Lenham has 3 separate nesting boxes, located on the side of the house. The nesting boxes can be locked off at night, dramatically reducing the amount of droppings that the chickens leave in the nest box and cutting down on egg cleaning time.
Long lasting pressure treated wood - All Forsham chicken houses are built to last. The Boughton is constructed using thick, strong, fully planed and pressure treated ship lap, which means your chicken house will last for years to come. All the fixings and furniture are zinc plated.
