About Us

Rentachook started in 2001 as an idea to encourage people to keep chickens – an environmentally sustainable pet.  The concept is that you get to try keeping chooks without having to commit to having them permanently.  As at November 2019, that is 18 years of being a poultry magnate.  You think I’d have grown up by now?

Like a try-before-you-buy option, what happens is you buy the Eco-Coop package outright (a chicken coop, 2 hens, feeder, waterer, food, straw and a book to tell you how it goes keeping chooks) but have 6 weeks to decide if keeping chooks is right for you, your lifestyle, your garden etc.

If you decide to return the chooks and coop, you get your deposit returned and it has only cost you $100 rental (+$30 for the book).  Longer trial periods can easily be negotiated, but we find that 6 weeks is usually about enough time to come to a decision.

Returned coops are sold to other customers and the chooks don’t mind at all.

We also sell coops in two sizes, chooks on their own, certified organic stockfeed and many other items to ensure you have everything you need to be confident in keeping chooks at home.  Although Rentachook is Sydney based, we sell flatpack chicken coops around Australia if you can organise freight.

We manufacture and sell; hen houses, chicken coops, chook houses, chook coops, chook houses, chicken houses for those who want to keep chooks or chickens in their backyard or at home or who surf the net using google (I’m hoping this paragraph will increase the hits on my website).  Worth a try eh!
