I will be raising Cornish X in 2012, I do a lot of gardening and live in zone 6. I am considering a hoop house as my dual purpose grow out pen and my seed starter to get a jump on gardening. I figure I could start my CX in September and by 1st of Feburary have the hoop house free for starting my seeds. Anyone use a hoop house this way. I figure I will have a month in between processing the birds to starting seed so I can clean the walls. I'm sure there will be a lot of cleaning needed but I use chicken manure compost in my gardens so there should not really be much of a risk with it. After I set seed I can plant in May so I could start my second batch of CX then. I'm planning on a 10 x 7 x 20 hooop house. I"m thinking 25 chickens at a time. Thoughts?
