Hen House

Recommended Posts

My hubby is building me a hen house and he is unsure whether it is okay to use preserved (tanalised) timber or if this poses any risks to the chooks? Any advise please.


We have just finished building our hen hotel and we only used tanalised timber - the girls do not peck it at all so i wouldnt hesitate about using it if i were you.

Hope this helps :D:D:D

Thanks everyone. Emma, did you use sanded or non-sanded wood? Have you got any pictures?


Hi Chooks, the main support posts were sanded but the noggins and gravel boards were not.




This link should hopefully take you to the hen hotel - its at the bottom of the page! :D


Have a look at the other runs too - thats where i got my inspiration from :wink:
