Full view of 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. A beautiful end to another beautiful day. A closer view of the gate end and the short tender grasses the birds graze on. A closer view of the gate end. You can see the ladder to the loft as well as the waterer and feeder.
       
A hoop house covered by a tarp to reduce solar gain during the hottest part of the summer. The pullets and their escorts free-ranging

 

Our brood house. Highly insulated and properly ventilated. Has a nice thermal window on the opposite side for good natural light. It is also on skids and moved daily.

 

Some of the always curious Buff Orpington Roosters. 
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. A hoop house attached to the Layer unit, doubling the available square footage. The sides and ends have curtains that may be lowered during inclement weather. The hoop house is highly predator-resistant with1x2 welded wire on he ends and lower portion of the sides. The door is closed at night The upright, squared off ends make a great connection point for electrified netting My youngest hired hand
