Unlike steel or timber, aluminium will not rot, rust or deteriorate in the weather. You can have peace of mind that your coop will be looking just as great in many years' time. Royal Rooster's specially designed aluminium is made with channels for the mesh or iron to directly slot into, so that there are no ugly fixings on either side of the panels to keep the materials in place.
Black Frame Optional Upgrade: coops are made standard with silver anodized aluminium framework, however black framework is also available as an optional upgrade.
SMALL-SIZED GALVANIZED MESH
Royal Run coops are made with small sized galvanised steel mesh, 25mm x 25mm x 2.5mm. This mesh is very strong and is impossible for foxes to chew through or for you to accidentally damage.
Mini Mesh Optional Upgrade: If rodents or snakes are a concern where you live, you can alternatively have your coop made with 12.5mm x 12.5mm mesh that is 1.24mm thick.
FOUR DOORS FOR EASY ACCESS
This coop has four different doors for easy access to your chickens. Both ends of the coop open downwards. The roof is also made up of two hinged sections, allowing you to open just the housing section roof or just the run section roof to reach your chickens.
MINI FLUTED CORRUGATED IRON
The side walls and roof of the Royal Run is made using mini fluted corrugated iron in Zincalume (silver) colour. This is quality Bluescope steel which is made in Australia.
Colorbond Optional Upgrade: The Royal Run is also available in Colorbond for those after a colour to best suit your backyard. Colours available are Cottage Green, Pale Eucalypt, Deep Ocean, Monument and Woodland Grey. Custom Colorbond colours are also available upon request.
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 Royal Run is open to allow maximum ventilation in the hot summer months. There are also two side ventilation sections on the sides of the coop, for extra ventilation in the housing area.
Weather Shield Optional Upgrade: 'Weather shields' are an optional extra that can also be purchased to provide extra protection in wet or windy weather. One shield further encloses the housing section with still a gap for the chickens to walk into the housing area. The other two shields go over the side ventilation areas to keep the housing area nice and cosy in the cool weather.
OPEN FLOOR DESIGN
The Royal Run coops have an open floor design to allow your hens to scratch up the soil below.
Fox Proof Floor Optional Upgrade: Optional 'fox proof floors' can also be purchased for those needing to protect from foxes. The large sized mesh floor using 150mm x 100mm sized mesh. This ensures your chickens have access to the ground to scratch but also means digging foxes or dogs can't gain entry. It's wired to the base of the coop so it can be added or removed if needed and will move along with the coop when you move your coop in your backyard.
As these coops are made with aluminium rather than heavy steel frames, the coops are easy to move with one person lifting on each end of the coop. When the chickens have adequately scratched up one area in your yard, just move the coop to another spot or even on top of a garden bed for the chickens to turn over the soil.
Heavy Duty Wheel Optional Upgrade: The optional wheel upgrade makes moving your coop even easier. Just turn the lever arms into the raised position on either side of your coop, push or pull your coop to a new area and then lower again. The chickens if inside, will jump up onto the cross bar or fox proof floor and go for a ride!
WOODEN LAYING BOXES (optional)
Chickens need a nice cosy place to lay their eggs. A flock of around 6 chickens will all share the one laying box, each taking it in turn to lay their eggs. For most owners of backyard chickens, 1-2 nest boxes are adequate. Royal Rooster makes wooden laying boxes specially for the range of chicken coops. They are 36cm x 33cm x 10cm deep and are made from quality, dressed pine.
Two wooden perches are provided for night time sleeping area for the chickens. These perches are 42mm wide and 19mm thick, which is said to be the best size and shape for chickens to comfortably perch on for night time sleep.
CHICKEN FEEDERS & DRINKERS
A popular upgrade to the Royal Run is a feeder and drinker set. These hook straight onto the mesh of your coop and make keeping chickens a breeze. Available with either a single drinker cup or twin cups. Due to their slimline design, these take up very minimal room in your coop.
DELIVERY INSURANCE (optional)
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 $15 for peace of mind.
These coops are very simple to put together and come with detailed, illustrated instructions. You’ll need a rubber mallet, an electric drill and a number 2 Philips-head driver. Assembly time should be between 1-2 hours depending on skill level. A pair of pointy nose pliers is also handy if your order your coop with mini mesh walls.
