  • Why choose a plastic chicken house? - Green Frog Designs
    winter compared with a wooden house that can take several hours to dry out 3 If you are raising batches of birds for example meat birds biosecurity is important as you do not want to transfer disease from one batch to the next It is difficult to ensure that a wooden house has been completely disinfected but a plastic house can be washed down treated with disinfectant and be ready for the next batch 4 Plastic houses are less likely to suffer from the dreaded red mite The red mite is an ectoparasite that sucks the blood of a chicken They hide in crevices in the chicken house during the day and emerge at night to take a blood meal from the roosting chickens When infestations are bad chickens may refuse to go in at night Red mites reduce egg production and can kill the birds Although there are crevices on plastic houses there are usually fewer than on a similar sized wooden house If red mites appear the houses can be power hosed and the red mites washed away Its not so easy with a wooden house Also mites hide under roofing felt where they are impossible to reach Keeping a wooden house red mite free can be a costly exercise as the various treatments such as diatom and poultry shield are not cheap and they need to be used monthly all year round 5 Good ventilation is important for poultry Plastic houses usually create more condensation than a wooden house which is not good for the birds health so plenty of ventilation is essential Fortunately the design of most plastic houses takes this into account and they come with permanent and adjustable ventilation holes 6 Many people worry that plastic housing will not be warm enough in winter

  • What’s the right size and shape for a perch? - Green Frog Designs
    have adequate space on the perch and headroom above it they are also quite fussy about the shape of the perch When considering perches it is quite important to understand the mechanics of a bird s leg Perching birds have toes that can wrap around their perch and they do not fall off their perch even when they are asleep because of two specially adapted flexor tendons in their legs These tendons extend down the leg and on to the tips of their toes When the bird hops onto its perch it bends its legs this causes the tendons to tighten and locks the toes around the perch The tendons stay locked while the legs remain bent When the bird stands up in order to jump down from its perch the tendons relax and the toes can straighten In order to perch comfortably the perch nees to replicate a branch of a tree which is the natural roosting place in the wild An artificial perch for chickens needs ideally to be square with rounded off corners in section so their feet can wrap around it comfortably Sharp edges and 90 degree corners are not acceptable And it needs to be the right diameter for the size of bird 30 to 40mm is ideal for the average sized laying chicken If it is too thin their toes will overlap and if it s too thick their toes won t be able to wrap around enough to clamp them in position either way they find it less easy to perch For practical reasons most perches are made from timber which tends to come in square or rectangular section So if you are making your own some work with a plane will be necessary to chamfer the edges Circular dowel is not recommended

  • How many chickens can I keep in my chicken house? - Green Frog Designs
    hand you can have problems if the house is much too large particularly in winter when the combined body heat is insufficient to heat the air around the birds and they get chilled In the depths of a very cold winter this can be overcome by providing temporary insulation around the house such as a few straw bales but don t be tempted to close up all the ventilation holes it is better to let them get a bit cold than not to provide adequate ventilation The ideal scenario is to have a slightly larger house than the minimum for your chosen number of birds This gives them a reasonable amount of space and may also give you the option of being able to enlarge your flock at some point in the future When calculating how many birds you can fit in there are three things to consider 1 Headroom 2 Floor area 3 Perch length Assuming that there is adequate headroom the maximum number of birds that can be accomodated in a house will be the smaller of a number determined by the floor area or a number determined by the perch length So how do you work out the minimum number well read on Headroom Headroom is important particularly with large birds Ideally you will allow sufficient headroom above the perch a bird to stand upright the minimum is about 200mm Remember to take into account the design of the house Perches close to sloping walls can make it difficult for large birds to roost comfortably Ark shaped houses for example typically offer less headroom at the sides than those with straight sides Floor Area The Poultry Club of Great Britain has guidelines regarding the minimum space required per bird They state that you should allow 200x200mm 8x8 in for bantams which is equivalent to 25 birds per metre square or 300x300mm 1 foot square for large fowl equivalent to 11 birds per metre square The gold standard for welfare is generally considered to be the Soil Association They specify a minimum stocking density of 6 birds per square metre for large fowl This means that each laying bird has a floor space of 400x400mm You will notice that there is quite a difference in these figures It is of course up to you to decide which standard you wish to adopt but you should remember that these are still minimum figures more floor area is usually better When calculating the floor space in a particular house remember the following make sure measurements are internal or allow for the tickness of the walls and possibly roof overhangs if the manufacturer only provides external measurements do not include any nest boxes internal or external do not include the area under low sloping sides Perch Length Once again standards vary though not as much as for perch space For large fowl the Soil Association requires 180mm per bird while the Poultry Club recommends 200mm Once again these are minimum figures
