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.
How long does it take to assemble a Nestera plastic 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.

I’m fairly new to the world of chickens and I’ve always hesitated in getting them because we have so many eagles, hawks, and coyotes. Last month, Gary, a rooster was dumped out of a car at the entrance to our property. I felt really sorry for him and decided to adopt. I realize a rooster is a bit useless, but I enjoy him so much and splurged in a Nestera coop for Gary. This coop is truly as predictor proof as you can get. I was able to put together my coop on about 2 1/2 hours ( I think I took longer than others because I’m technically challenged and I was by myself). Gary is happily ensconced in his bachelor pad. My next purchase will be an automatic door opener. Thank you Nestera for a wonderful product and Gary thanks you for his new home!
LOVE this chicken coop
I absolutely love this chicken coop. It is very easy to clean and our four hens love it. Our old coop was built by the previous homeowners and was very hard to keep clean, this checked all the boxes for us and now I feel like my hens have a clean home!
Thank you so much for the kind words - we are so thrilled to hear your hens love it too!
Nice large coop. Chickens seem happy. Construction was pretty easy but the split ring provided didn't fit into the small clevis pin provided, but I had a smaller one that slipped in with no issue. Do wish they would send a few extra pie clips because one broke during shipping.
Large Raised Coop - Excellent Product & Customer Service
Definitely a well made coop. I had a wooden coop before and it was deteriorating after 1 year. This plastic coop will obviously last several decades if not longer. I have it placed inside my metal chicken run so I can’t really testify if it is predator safe but I can confidently say it would have been much safer than my wood coop. Where I lived there are coyotes and i have had an attack once already (coyotes gave up after 10 mins). I have the large raised coop for 2 medium size chicken, which is plenty more space than needed. Could easily fit 5 medium size chicken. I can’t say enough good praises for the product and Nestera as a company. They did not have in stock at their local warehouse the size that I purchased but customer service worked with me to ensure a smooth transaction and that I was ultimately satisfied.
We are a second generation of family chicken farmers and have had many wooden coops (some had to be burned in the fire pit) over the years. This is a Great quality coop and excellent customer service! This is a company where you buy once and have the quality to last past there 25 year warranty. Anytime it needs to be cleaned or disinfected just take out the pressure washer or hose. I just had an interaction with customer service due to damaging my coop while cutting down a tree. No fault of the company or the coop and was fixable on my end. Reached out to Nestera and explained what had happened (while cutting down a tree haha) and they shipped me the parts for free. I offered to pay but they were at my door two days later and there reply to me was that they were happy to help. To me that was unbelievable!. My next purchase will also be from Nestera for there Wagon coop.
