frequently asked questions
Are Nestera chicken coops fox-proof?
We really think so! We've not received a single report of a fox getting into one of our coops. Our ‘chew-resistant’ coops are made from 100% recycled plastic which is really tough, and the ventilation holes are far too small for a fox. The rear door is lockable and the front door is reinforced with rotating metal slide, which makes it difficult to open by lifting, unlike classic vertical sliding doors.
Are Nestera chicken coops red mite-proof?
Unfortunately, nothing is 100% red mite-proof. However, Nestera chicken coops are cleverly designed to be extremely red mite-resistant! Red mites are tiny, and live in cracks and joints in poultry housing. Unlike wooden chicken coops, ours are made from solid 100% recycled plastic and created to ensure there are very few suitable places for red mite to hide. We recommend sprinkling Diatom powder around the coop when refreshing the bedding, so any mites present are quickly dealt with before they can multiply.
Do Nestera chicken coops get cold in winter and/or hot in the summer?
The plastic we use is 100% recycled which we have found to be an excellent material for chicken coops. In the winter months, the required ventilation means the temperature inside the coop will be similar to the ambient air temperature outside. However, chickens are quite tolerant of the cold as their feathers provide good insulation. During the warmer summer months, our solid, UV-resistant roofs reflects the sun's heat really well, keeping your chickens cool and comfortable.
How many feathery residents can live in a Nestera chicken coop?
We have three sizes available: Small, Medium and Large. The Small is designed for up to two large fowls or four bantams, the Medium for up to five large fowls or nine bantams and the Large suits up to eight large fowls or 15 bantams.
Can I install an automatic door opener on a Nestera coop?
Absolutely! We offer the ChickenGuard Premium ECO as an optional extra with all our coops. Discreet pre-drilled holes are included on each coop for easy installation.
How long does it take to assemble a Nestera chicken coop?
Most people manage to successfully assemble their Nestera coop in well under an hour. You certainly don’t need to be a DIY expert! We provide clear and easy-to-follow instructions with every chicken coop.

It was super quick in delivery, I phoned as I’d forgotten to include the trays , very helpful and efficient. Easy to follow instructions, well made recycled plastics panels fit together well. So now our girls are happy and our lives will be easier. Only one question re the guarantee, nothing in writing/certificate.
