The Chicken Wagon is the latest and greatest model in the current Nestera range, and the design takes its inspiration from the famously covered wagons of the American 'Wild West'. The Poultry Club of Great Britain Guidelines indicates that this house would be suitable for up to 7 large fowl or 17 bantams. However, we recommend a little more space per bird and suggest that it is ideal for up to 6 larger birds or 12 bantams.
It has two individual nest boxes, each with a roll-away nest box insert, which helps keep eggs clean. Once laid, they roll back into a collecting area which is covered by a flap. Easy access to the collecting area is provided by a lockable sliding cover at the rear of the house.
The nest boxes can be easily removed if required. Access to inspect the birds and for cleaning is via a full-height front door which can be quickly opened, yet securely fastened in just a few seconds. Easy access makes regular cleaning a breeze.
Permanent ventilation is provided under the roof at the front, with two additional fully adjustable circular vents at the back, so the house remains surprisingly cool, even in the strong, direct summer sunlight. Being plastic, the Wagon requires no routine maintenance. There are few crevices for pests (such as red mites) to hide in, and the house can be thoroughly cleaned very easily - in seconds if you have a pressure washer. And it will dry out very quickly, too.
This house can be easily moved by one person, and its large wheels mean that it won't sink into the ground. If you ever need to dismantle your Chicken Wagon for any reason, you can easily do so and then rebuild it just as easily. Your wagon will not be damaged by this process.
