the Solway Eco Hen Ark

After listening to feedback on our Eco Hen Ark we decided to make a few minor changes to the design to suit owners and chickens alike one thing that hasn't changed is that we continue to build our arks on site when delivered to you all you'll have to do is the simple 5 minute job of clicking the nest boxes and extension run into place.

The Latest Solway Eco Hen Ark has external nesting boxes for easy access to eggs and also allows more room inside the hen ark for you hens. We have also changed the door to utilise our recycled plastic rather than have a metal bolt lock meaning more recycled product is used make it more eco-friendly. The final change we have made is the perches now go from front to back rather than side to side, this makes the hen ark easier to carry and move around.

Eco Hen Ark Manufacture

The Eco Hen Ark is manufactured from 100% Recycled Plastic our Solway Eco Hen Ark is produced on site from the recycled plastic collected from the farms of our 40,000 customers. No part of the process is outsourced this gives our unique Eco Hen Ark many benefits:

The recycled plastic used in your Eco Hen Ark will help prevent the build up of red mite which is a problem if you are housing a number of birds together. While we cannot guarantee red mite will not find a home on your hen house the plastic does not allow red mites to penetrate unlike wood.

"I'm so pleased with the hen arc. Having battled red mite for several years I have completely given up on wooden coops in favour of plastic. The ark I bought from you is perfect for my small flock - easy to clean, hygienic and light enough to move easily."
