Rentachook - Pet Chickens Made Easy

Once you have had the pleasure of a rich, gooey, fresh, home grown egg, you won't ever be satisfied with the bland, pasty, shop-bought offerings again!

Rentachook makes keeping chooks at home easy. Our customers get all the support and advice they need to make their chooks a success. We manufacture and sell eco-friendly chicken coops as well as hens, certified organic feed and everything else chooks might need.  

We also invented the rent-try-buy option that allows you to give it a go without committing permanently.  Selling backyard chickens since 2001, we have pioneered sustainable suburban chooks and continue to focus on customer support and advice.

If you return it, you rented it. If you keep it, you bought it.



All of the chicken coops I sell are handmade by me, not bought in from overseas and assembled.  I am currently undertaking renovations, which includes rebuilding my workshop. This means that, until I can complete the building works, I cannot take any new orders for coops (EcoCoop packages or Midi Coops).  Please accept my apologies for this hiatus.

I have a waiting list for those willing to wait.  However, I can't give an indication of when I will be able to start manufacturing again I'm afraid.  If you are one of the many of my customers that have been thinking about getting chooks for ages, getting chooks is not urgent, and you really want a Rentachook coop, please feel free to email me at chooks@rentachook.com.au with the title "waiting list" and give me your contact details.  I will get in touch when I back up and running. 

As an alternative, I am selling Chook Start-up Packages for people who have sourced their coop elsewhere or built their own.

I am still selling hens (by the dozen!), feed (by the tonne) and other items but cannot provide you with a coop until further notice.
