Chicken Coop Project page 5 Preface I originally designed 'The Ultimate Chicken Coop' for a monthly magazine called the 'New Zealand Lifestyle Block' - a practical small farm guide.. The plans and step-by-step instructions were first published in the magazine - issue 13, on June 2005 (subject to me retaining all rights). Subsequently I published them in my (this) website as a free article (this article) and also in a printable PDF version as a $5 buy plan (free of ads and in clean copy). Over time there has been a few minor modifications made to the article. There is a bit of copyright information at the bottom of the page. Measurements All measurements throughout this project are given in both Standard/Imperial inches and Metric (mm). Seek local knowledge These plans and information are for the most part general. The chickens mansion A chicken coop is a place of shelter, a safe retreat for chickens and a place where the hens can lay their eggs. 4.5 sq ft (0.4 sq m) of space per chicken

ecorev_fablab [Bricoles du-libre] Comme on le lit depuis deux ou trois ans, une petite mythologie s'est créée autour des ateliers ouverts aux amateurs éclairés et aux spécialistes que sont les fablabs. Deux aspects intéressants de ces fablabs sont le partage effectif des connaissances et les expérimentations qui dépassent largement le champ de l'informatique pure. Les choses numériquement conçues envahissent le monde et le fablab permet d'en décortiquer toutes les facettes, de la conception, l'étude et les tests à la production. De fait, il n'existe pas ou peu d'autres lieux de partage et d'enseignement ouverts de cette façon à tous. Ces fablab restent toujours sur le terrain du capitalisme. Si nous voulons faire une réalité des idées exposées par André Gorz, il ne faut pas laisser faire, pour réfléchir ensuite à l'explication. Ce que beaucoup n'ont pas appris de leurs parents, c'est le bricolage et l'art de la débrouille, le bon vieux système D. Le politique a laissé faire la délocalisation.

Chicken coop design tips - Hen house home > Lawn & Garden > Keep Chickens > Coop Design Tips Building a house for your hens must start with the birds. There is nothing like a wet hen—when they are damp they act really, really annoyed. Once you've addressed the needs of your chickens, then you can begin to add elements that make your life easier. Automatic watering. Dimensions Your hen house and coop benefit from being tall enough for you to open a door and walk into it. The size of the hen house, which contains the nests and roosts, needs to accommodate the number of birds you have (or aspire to) and be large enough for you to walk into and turn around. Windows are good, especially if they open. Once the minimum size has been met which works for the birds, the rest is gravy. Materials You can buy brand new materials for your hen house and coop to make it the Taj Mahal among coops or build it from scrap. Build the house on concrete blocks and use solid wood flooring to prevent rats and snakes from getting in. Books

La Fabrique du Libre - Espace numérique de partage des savoirs autour de l’informatique libre et écologique Designing a Pasture Shelter Photo by Deborah Moore The following is the main portion of an article of the same title that I wrote for the August/September 2007 issue of Backyard Poultry Magazine, a great resource for the homestead flock owner. The pastured flock I have numerous times in these pages encouraged readers to keep their flocks on pasture if at all possible. There is no place a chicken (or duck or goose) is happier and healthier than foraging over good pasture, socializing and engaging in interesting natural behaviors, finding best-quality foods on her own, and enjoying the benefits of sunshine, fresh air, and exercise. Unless your pastured flock is “anchored” on the main poultry house, you will need a pasture shelter to provide protection from rain and from predators, a place where they feel secure to roost at night, and (in the case of layers) nests for laying eggs. Waterfowl usually show no interest in a shelter, even when it rains, but they badly need shade when it is hot. Easy mobility Sabot Bolt Wheel Wind
