All Royal Rooster coops are made right here in Australia from quality materials and with quality workmanship.
Aluminium is much lighter than steel which means less strain for you to move your coop around your yard. Also, unlike steel or timber, aluminum will not rust or deteriorate in the weather. You can be rest assured that your coop will be looking just as great in many years time. We can now make the Chicken Castle coops with either a clear anodized (silver) aluminum frame (standard) or black anozided for just $30 extra. Great modern look.
Small-sized galvanized mesh
The coops have been made using small sized steel mesh, 2.5mm thick with 25mm squares. This strong mesh is difficult to accidently damage and is impossible for foxes to chew through! We now also make coops using 'mini mesh' for those needing extra protection from snakes and rodents. See upgrade below.
Mini Fluted Corrugated Iron
The sides and roof of the Chicken Castle is made using very stylish zincalume mini corrugated iron. Coops are also available in Colorbond for those wishing their coop to match the colour of their fence or shed!
Raised Housing Section
These great-looking coops have an ‘upstairs’ bedroom which maximizes the room inside the coop. Chickens are able to scratch underneath the mesh upstairs floor and all around the lower level of the coop. When they're ready to retire for the night the wooden ladder takes them up to their perching area.
Unlike imported coops, Royal Rooster coops are designed and made in Australia, taking into consideration our very hot summers. The floor of the upstairs housing section is made of mesh, to maximize ventilation on hot days. Optional 'weather shields' can also be purchased to provide extra protection in wet weather.
The entire roof of the Chicken Castle is made of mini corrugated iron, providing shade from the sun and protection from rain and wind in the cooler months.
As these coops are made of aluminium, they are surprisingly light to move around your yard. With one person on either end, you can easily move your coop area. Optional sets of wheels are also available for those wishing to move the coop with just one person.
Open Floor Design
The coops have an open floor design to allow your chickens to scratch up the soil beneath the coop, enjoying fresh weeds, seeds and bugs. Once they're adequately turned up your soil, you can move the coop along to another area for your chickens to enjoy. Optional 'fox proof floors' can also be purchased for those needing extra protection from these predators.
Two door access
The coops have two latched doors at both ends of the coop to allow easy access to the laying boxes (rear door) as well as to supply fresh water and food for your chickens. The very popular Royal Rooster drinker and feeder sets can also be purchased which simply hook onto the mesh of the coop, making it very easy to refill the water and replenish the feed as needed.
Wooden laying box & egg collection
The Chicken Castle comes with 1 quality wooden laying box for your chickens to share (chickens naturally share nesting areas). All you need to do is add the straw! The rear door of the coop opens to allow easy assess for your eggs. Additional laying boxes can be purchased if desired.
Wooden perches & ladder
Two wooden perches are fitted to the upstairs 'bedroom'. These perches are 40mm wide and 12mm thick, which is said to be the best size and shape for chickens to comfortably perch on for nighttime sleep.
Black Frame - For $30 extra, the Chicken Castle coop can be made with a modern, black anodized aluminum frame. This looks particularly great with the grey Colorbond upgrade detailed below.
Wheels - For $50 extra, the coops can be fitted with wheels. These are located midway along the coop and can be raised into the moving position when needed. You will find that these coops are a breeze to move.
Weather Shields - To keep your chickens nice and cosy in the colder months, you can purchase weather shields that fit over the ventilation areas of the coop. This includes a covered floor in the upstairs housing section and an additional shield that fits inside the coop to further enclose the housing section. $50 extra.
Fox Proof Floor - If foxes or dogs are a problem, you can purchase an wire mesh floor for your coop ($50). The large sized mesh floor (with 15cm x 20cm rectangles) still enables your chickens to scratch the soil and at the same time gives you peace of mind about their safety overnight.
Colorbond - The coops are also available using Colorbond materials for the walls, roof and enclosed door ($50 extra), with the remaining materials made from Zincalume. Colorbond colours to choose from are Cottage Green, Pale Eucalypt and Deep Ocean. Please ask if you are interested in a different Colorbond colour.
Drinker & Feeder Sets - These great slim-line sets are designed specifically for use on these coops. $75 per set which includes a rain cover on the feed to keep it nice and dry all year round.
Delivery Insurance - Highly recommended. This covers the replacement or repair of your coop if damaged in transit as well as the freight to transport damaged parts back to us and new parts over to you. Only $12 for peace of mind.
Additional Laying Boxes - One wooden laying box is provided with the Chicken Castle, but if you prefer more they can be purchased for $15 each.
External Nest Box - If you would like to allow more room in the housing section of your coop, or like the idea of collecting eggs from an external nest box, this option might be for you. Made to fit two wooden nest boxes. As one nest box is included with the Chicken Castle, this upgrade also includes an additional nest box to go inside the external nest box enclosure. ($170 extra when purchased with a Chicken Castle).
Mini Mesh - If snakes or rodents are an issue, we can make your Chicken Castle coop using mini mesh galvanised wire, rather than the standard 25mm mesh for $35 extra (25mm gauge wire). This mini mesh has 12.5mm squares and 1.6mm gauge wire.
These coops are very simple to put together and come with detailed, illustrated instructions. You’ll need just 2 adjustable spanners, an electric drill and a number 2 Philips-head driver. Assembly time should be between 1-2 hours.
All coops are made in our purpose built premises in Willaston in South Australia. We aim to dispatch coops approximately 1 week after an order has been placed. Delivery with TNT generally then takes between 1-2 weeks to arrive. If you live in SA, pickup from our premises is most welcome.
