    Chickens aren't picky, I am sure that would work and for the low low price of $30,425.00 you should buy at least two of them!

    I know its bit over the top huh? [​IMG]

    I was curious about things like maintenance, keeping in mind heat and cooling issues. Things like that from a hoop house style LIKE that one. [​IMG]

    A hoop structure can make a great coop and if you're not having to move it you can make it as large as you want.

    I make my poultry tractors with cattle panels.

    Portable and entirely self-contained (roosts, nests, feed and water). When I get around to replacing the original roost house in the henyard I'll use a stationary hoop structure there as well.
