Has anyone ever seen someone have their chickens on the second floor of a barn? We took down a 100 year old barn and are rebuilding it. We hoped to have it done before winter, but alas it is not. So it is hold for a little while until the weather will allow us to finish it. Anyway - the horses will be on the first floor along with our Anatolians. We also plan on having a small workshop on the first floor so we can work on the tractor or whatever. On the second floor we want to put the chickens. Their area would be about 20 x 30 ft. The rest of the loft would be for hay. There will be a wall so they can't get to the hay. The barn is a gambrel roof barn and the chicken room outside wall (that isn't roof) is all windows. I'm trying to figure out the best way for the chickens to be able to get DOWN safely. Looking for other people's imputs here to see what they think. These pics aren't current and we have done a bunch of work since I took this. I will take some more tomorrow with the snow. I don't know how to post pics on here - but here are the pics that I put on my blog. http://startingover-anewlifeinthecountry.blogspot.com/ Thanks!
