Our new property has two of these huts that were originally shelters for small deers. I would like to convert one to a turkey coop (large hut) and one to a mama chicken coop (smaller hut). The largest is about 2m wide, 2m high and 6m long. The smaller one is about 1.5m, wide, 1.5m high and 6m long. Inside remains dry from rain (unless we get horizontal rain....sigh!). They are angled for a little morning and afternoon sun and a bit of protection from the southerly cold winds we get from Argentina). In Paraguay we have hot humid summers and winters can have frosts and cold winds though are often mild. Our temperatures can vary dramatically after rain it goes from 37C to 22C easily! There is a barb wire perimeter to stop the cows eating the thatch! I would like to cover this with chicken wire to create a small run but make sure the birds do not land or get caught on it when they get up to mischief. They can free range outside the run but I want to be able to control when and for how long. Our main predators are hawks and dogs but the outer paddock fencing is secure against dogs and the tree cover should help with the hawks. I have a water tap nearby. Since I already have other coops and pens (can you see the chicken math here? Hence my user name is More Now) I would like to set these coops up so they are low maintenance for feed, water, cleaning especially since they are further away and I have to go through multiple gates. If I use too much timber to close in the coops it will be very dark inside. I would like to be able to lock the birds inside the coop when necessary. So any ideas or advice is appreciated before I rush off and make something that ends up being poorly planned.
