New Round Pens

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

My new round pens I'm building. 4 ft high x 5 ft diameter x 16 ft circumference. Each one cost $100 +/- for pvc and corrugated plastic + 1.5 lbs of 3/4 inch self drillers

 

 

 

 

 

Just Do It!

 

If you don't do it you won't become it

And if you try to fake it you will just be a liar

That is a good set up I might have to use it later this year when I get my trios set up.

Thanks, however I was breaking too many connectors, at least one on ever circle, so I am now adding 45 degree elbows. I will post pics tomorrow when I finish the one I'm workin on. I really wish they weren't breaking cause I like the round design better than the almost square design of the new ones I'm forced to change it to

Yeah, those connectors weren't meant to have that kind of stress on them.

You could heat and bend the pipe and keep the part that goes into the connector straight...but that can be tricky too.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."
