The chicken house and coop and also the green house share the ten by 12 feet building that is situated near the garden and while watching Satsuma trees. This can offer an extra layer of shelter during wintertime of these orange trees while supplying quick access in the green house towards the vegetable garden when you’re ready to plant the seedlings out.
The chickens’ part measures 5 ft by 10 ft. It’s totally engrossed in chicken wire and hardware cloth or siding on every side and it has a roof covering within the entire structure. The hardware cloth extends 9 inches out and in to the dirt to discourage burrowing predators from digging in.
It’s subdivided into a double edged sword. The home in which the roost and nest boxes can be found includes a metal roof, walls made from wooden siding, a 36 inch door having a glass insert (leading outdoors) and saloon style doorways which may be propped open during warm weather contributing in to the coop. The coop is how they are able to take dirt baths under the sun and scratch around when they’re kept in. I allow them to out every single day to forage for any couple of hrs.
The green house measures 7 ft by 10 ft. It’s window screen and hardware cloth on 3 sides and obvious fiber glass on the top and area of the common wall. Within the south where we live, a green house is required for just about 4 several weeks from the year, therefore we designed so that it is utilized as a event gazebo during warmer weather and added a ceiling fan. During wintertime, I’m able to put plastic on the three screened sides. The sink is going to be used all year round for laundry and filling hummingbird feeders as well as for potting and watering plants.
From greenhouse to chicken house!
