Options available for Animal Housing

Canadian Cedar Shingles
Canadian Cedar Wood Roof Shingles
The roof is insulated with 19mm timber and covered with a waterproof membrane to which the Cedar tiles are applied, making it 100% watertight. The oils in the Cedar wood also act as a deterrant against insects and red mites. The tiles should last approximately 25- 35 years.
Poultry house roog garden
Roof Garden (sedum matting)
The matting consits of drought tolerant plants (very low maintenance) long flowering season, no need for pruning or deadheading, just feed once a year, for a fabulous floral display, nectar rich flowers that are attractive to butterflies and bees.
This roof also acts as a great natural insulator.

droppings tray for poultry housing Galvanised Metal Droppings Tray
No smelly wooden boards to scrape and clean. Our poultry house metal droppings trays all come with a 1"(25mm) lip to keep straw or shaving in the tray. Trays can easily be removed and washed down. Use of metal dropping tray reduces the risk of mites & other parasites.

Red Mite Treatment
Feathers Animal Housing have developed a system which has been tried and tested in our hen houses for over 4 years, with fantastic results. All the joints, noocks and crannies inside the house are sealed with an animal safe compound and then painted over with a hard wearing floor paint. Drain holes are made in the floor so that the inside can be hosed down. Although this treatment of our poultry houses is not a guarantee that you will never get mite or other parasite, by reducing the places that mites can hide and bread within the house, we are reducing the chances of infestation and increasing the ability to treat any problems that do occur. Prices start at £210/house depending on the model and size.
