one of our 8'x12' pasture pens.
Includes a loft with bedding for cold/wet
days, a 5 gallon reservoir feeding a bell
type waterer, a large 30 or 50 lb feeder. Weight is ~300+
lbs. We move the pens about twice a day so the birds always have nice fresh forage.

opposite side for good natural light. It is
also on skids and moved daily.

One of our stand-alone hoop house grow-out
pens for pullets and broilers with the same
features as above.
An interior view of one of our stand-alone
grow-out pens. They are light filled and
airy. I have since added perches above the
level of the curtain tops. The birds are
quite content in these houses and their
shape does very well in our windy location.
The panels are connected with 1/4” cable
clamps and the bottom clamp pieces are used
to hold the panels to the baseboards. This
carefully developed and constructed system
is a real winner.

house is highly predator-resistant with1x2
welded wire on he ends and lower portion of
