    THE CHOOK PEN


    FORTY YEARS OLD AND STILL GOING!


    HISTORY NOTE:

    Since this 40'000 acre propety (now 14'000 acres) was pioneered by my grandmother and grandfather in the 1950's in central queensland australia it has become a great piece of prime beef cattle fattenig country with buffel grass all around. the chook pen was built a bit over 40 years ago and still going. apart from two leaning posts. holes where our pet wild pigs got in ten million times fixed up with blocks of wood, it is still going. enjoy the pics.
