Hey Everyone! We are considering converting an existing large garage to an additional barn for our breeder birds. We would use it during the breeding season to separate predominately our breeder ducks, but might use it during the off-season too if it works out well. The garage is huge. I am not sure of square footage, but there are two large overhead doors and in the past it housed a large RV, a boat, and a couple of cars at the same time. We want to set it up similar to the Holderread Red Barn... One of my concerns is that this garage does not have floor drains. We would probably be restricted to possibly removing all the bedding a couple times a year and then spraying and squeegeeing the water out (or having floor drains put in). The garage is built on a plateau built into a hillside, so the water would have plenty of room to drain once we got it out of the building. The lower 6 feet of so of the walls of the entire garage are also poured concrete, so unlike the Holderread set-up, we would not be able to do outside water porches either. The birds would have to be watered inside, with the splashed water somehow being drained out of the building (I have thought about doing some sort of trough system where they waterers would sit on grates over a trough that collects the water and with a PVC drain running out one of the doors). Do you think this could work or would it be a nightmare to keep clean and dry? What would you all use for bedding that could be easily scooped off the concrete? I think the additional work might be worth it since I could potentially do 25-30 runs inside this building all sharing the same access aisle for feed and egg collection. Do you think the runs could even do done just with hog panels zip tied together? TIA.
