All Royal Rooster coops are made right here in Australia from top quality materials and workmanship.
Aluminium, unlike steel or timber, 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 Palace with Large Extension coops with either a clear anodized (silver) aluminum frame (standard) or black anozided for just $110 extra. A great modern look.
SMALL-SIZED GALVANIZED MESH
The Chicken Palaces are made with small sized steel mesh, 2.5mm gauge with 25mm squares. This strong mesh is difficult to accidently damage and is impossible for foxes to chew through! We also offer the Chicken Palace in mini mesh (1.24mm gauage, 12.5mm squares) for those with snake and rodent issues. See upgrade below.
MINI FLUTED CORRUGATED IRON
The walls, back wall and 2.3m of the roof of the Chicken Palace is made using very stylish zincalume mini corrugated iron. The Palace is also available in Colorbond for those wishing their coop to match the colour of their fence or shed! Colours currently available are Cottage Green, Pale Eucalypt or Deep Ocean.
Unlike imported coops, Royal Rooster coops are designed and made in Australia, taking into consideration our very hot summers. The whole front of the housing section on the Chicken Palace is open to allow maximium ventilation on hot days. There is an optional 'weather shield' that can also be purchased to provide extra protection in wet weather. This shield encloses the housing section with still a gap to walk through to collect the eggs.
The roof of the Chicken Palace with Large Extension is part mini corrugated iron (2.3m), providing shade from the sun and protection from rain and wind in the cooler months. The remainder 3.6m is a mesh roof to allow sunshine through.
FIXED POSITION COOP
This coop, unlike the rest of the Royal Rooster range, is not designed to be moved around your yard. These coops are substanial structures, so If you need a mobile coop, please see the other coops available.
OPEN FLOOR DESIGN
The coops have an open floor design to allow your chickens to scratch up the soil and to have the pleasure of a dust bath. Optional 'fox proof floors' can also be purchased for those needing extra protection from these predators. These floors are made of large sized mesh (10cm x 15cm) that sits under the frame of the coop. Extra soil can be added on top of the mesh floor to make the area more 'earthy' for the chickens.
FRONT DOOR ACCESS
The Chicken Palace has a large door at the front of the coop allowing easy entry into the coop. This door is 1.66m high.
WOODEN LAYING BOXES & EGG COLLECTION
The Chicken Palace comes with 2 quality wooden laying boxes for your chickens. All you need to do is add the straw! Additional laying boxes can be purchased if desired. There is also the optional of an External Laying Box which can be fitted to the side of the coop, meaning that you don't have to enter the coop to collect your eggs. See upgrade bleow.
Two wooden perches are provided for night time sleeping area for the chickens. 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 $110 extra, the Chicken Palace with Large Extension coop can be made with a modern, black anodized aluminum frame. This looks particularly great with the grey Colorbond upgrade detailed below.
Weather Shield - To keep your chickens nice and cosy in the colder months, you can purchase a large weather shield that fits onto the front of the housing section of the Palace. This is made with an aluminium frame and mini-fluted iron. $100 extra.
Fox Proof Floor - If foxes or dogs are a problem, you can purchase an wire mesh floor for your coop ($130). The large sized mesh floor (with 10cm x 15cm 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, back wall and entire part of the iron roof ($90 extra). Colorbond colours to choose from are Cottage Green, Pale Eucalypt, Deep Ocean, Woodland Grey and Monument. 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. $80 per set which includes a rain cover on the feed to keep it nice and dry all year round. A twin version of the drinker is also available, with these sets selling for $90.
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.
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 the two wooden nest boxes that come with the Chicken Palace ($150 extra when purchased with a Palace).
Additional Laying Boxes - Two wooden laying boxes are provided with the Chicken Palace, but if you prefer more they can be purchased for $20 each.
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 (25mm gauge wire). This mini mesh has 12.5mm squares and 1.6mm gauge wire. This upgrade is $160 for the Chicken Palace with Large Extension.
These coops come with detailed, illustrated instructions to help you put together. You’ll need a rubbter mallet, an electric drill and a number 2 Philips-head driver. As this is our largest coop, it does take the most time to put together. Assembly time should be between 3-4 hours. You will need a helper at certain stages of assembly.
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.
