This hen house is made entirely from beech wood cut from the plank. It contains 6 hand painted rare breed chickens with the name of each engraved on the section. Breeds of your choice can be substituted for the standard ones.
Each roof section lifts out revealing a wooden rare breed chicken. The chickens are made in halves with the wood grain funning at 90 degrees to give additional strength to the finished figures. The wooden wheels, which turn, are similarly made in 2 parts for strength.
The hens included as standard are:
Rhode Island Red
Each is a different shape and will only fit into its own house section.
Each hen is hand painted with acrylics and finished with 4 coats of lacquer.
The house is shaped so that each section only fits in one space.
The chicken parts are cut from strips of beechwood sawn from the plank and microplanes to 4.5mm. Each set of chicken parts takes 4 hours to machine before being glued together.
