frequently asked questions
Are Nestera plastic chicken coops predator-proof?
We really think so! We've not received a single report of a predator 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 other animals. 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 plastic 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 plastic chicken coops get cold in winter and/or hot in the summer?
The plastic we use is 100% recycled which works perfectly for chicken coops, even in extreme temperatures. 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 summer months, our solid, UV-resistant roofs reflect the sun's heat really well, keeping your chickens cool and comfortable.
How many chickens can live in a Nestera plastic chicken coop?
For our standard range of three coops, we offer each in three sizes: Small, Medium and Large. The Small is designed for up to 2 large birds, 3 medium hens or 5 bantams, the Medium for up to 3 large birds, 5 medium size hens or 9 bantams and the Large suits up to 5 large fowls, 6 medium size hens or 15 bantams. The Wagon is suitable for up to 5 large fowls, 6 medium size hens or 15 bantams.
Can I install an automatic door opener on a Nestera coop?
Absolutely! We offer our own Nestera Automatic Door Opener as an optional extra with all our coops. Discreet pre-drilled holes are included on each coop for easy installation.

Best Chicken Coop
This chicken coop is easy to put together, it's a fair price, very well engineered. It's made of very high quality recycled plastic and it's super easy to clean. My six Rhode island reds are extremely healthy and happy. Thanks Nestera I am extremely happy I went with this option.
Thomas, thank you SO much for your kind words! We are so thrilled to hear you are happy with your coop and we hope your hens are too!
Easy to build and clean out. Seems to be extremely durable but may be slightly to small for my 5 layer hens as there has been a bit of hen pecking as they have been settling into the new digs. The door timer is a must. I have noticed less rat activity with this set up and that was why I bought it.
Second to none coop
Great chicken coop. Well built, super easy to assemble. Super easy to clean. Best in class chicken coop!
James, thank you so much for your kind review! We love hearing how happy our customers and their flocks are!
This is our 2nd Nestera coop
We have a large Nestera coop for 8 hens, and, due to chicken math, we got another 5 pullets. We tried are trying to sell some of the 8 hens, but it's taking too long, so we ordered another medium coop for the pullets. If you have the extra $, always go for the large, because the medium is only a little less $ and lacks space to expand. My 2 complaints: 1. the size large coop needs 4 nest boxes (2 on each side); 2. the manufacturing process is such that on our medium coop, almost all of the holes still had plastic in then, so we had punch them out. Also, the holes for the automatic door opener were not drilled. We keep both of these coops inside a large enclosed run and then give them access to free range in large aviary. No loss to predators yet despite seeing them often our wifi cams (and in person). Highly recommend the Nestera if you have a unique yard layout where you can't have a heavy wood coop delivered. The Nestera are so portable since they can be packed flat for shipment and moving from home to home.
