Roosting bars

roosting bars Dec 16 3

It's looking likely that the goat house, which we are temporarily using as part of a chicken run, will become the permanent henhouse. We were planning to build a new henhouse to replace the 5 small ones we have but it seems the solution to our chicken accommodation problem was staring us in the face. The former goathouse still needs some work on it to make it more than just a temporary structure. Nest boxes and a proper door will need to be added. We have, however, made some roosting bars from branches waiting to be chopped into firewood. The chickens took to them straightaway.
