frequently asked questions
Are Nestera plastic 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 for animals to open by lifting.
Are Nestera plastic chicken coops red mite-proof?
Unfortunately, nothing is 100% red mite-proof. However, Nestera chicken coops are intelligently designed to be extremely red mite-resistant, as well as easy to clean! 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 chickens can live in a Nestera chicken coop?
For our standard range of 3 coops, we offer each in 3 sizes: Small, Medium and Large. The Small is designed for up to 2 large birds or 4 bantams, the Medium for up to 5 large birds or 9 bantams, and the Large suits up to 8 large birds or 15 bantams. The Wagon is suitable for up to 8 large birds or 15 bantams.
Can I install an automatic door opener on a Nestera coop?
Absolutely! You don't need get up when your chickens do! We offer the Nestera Automatic Door Opener as an optional extra with all our coops. Discreet pre-drilled holes are included on each coop for easy installation.

Brilliant and super posh !
Love it, definately an upgrade for the ladies. Easy to pit together and even better with the auto door function.
Overall it's excellent purchased the droppings tray with it, which makes it much easier to clean and no parts to rust which is a bonus. The door fixings hadn't been drilled properly but managed to find something else to use to pull the door open/shut.
Love it. Easy to put together and easy to use. The 6 rescue ladies are very happy with their new house
Absolutely brilliant product. So easy to put together & my girls love it.
