The new house is 10'x20' and it's on a trailer, so it can be moved around the farm. At least that was the plan. Flat tires on the trailer and a wind so strong that it almost took it off, made quite a challenge. The wind was so strong that C.S.Farmer went to change the battery on my truck and the wind took the hood and slammed it up over the windshield. It now has wrinkles! I guess the truck and I are both getting older.
The chickens free range, but this house is for them to sleep in at night. There are nest boxes so the eggs are in the house, instead of all over the yard. About two hundred hens will use this house.
Lots of space for air at the top.
Let's hope a hawk doesn't find this part.
Last minute touch ups.
The ramp being put in place by C.S.Farmer. He told me I could enter the house
by walking up the ramp. He assured me, "It will hold you." What, exactly, do you mean by that?
Nesting boxes before the straw is added.
Roosts for the chicken to sleep on.
That sturdy ramp!
The spacious abode.
The hens were moved to Wendell's pasture. Here's what Wendell thinks of it.
