Mindful Farmer Coops are constructed much the same way as our hoop houses except for using UV treated silage plastic (black on one side & white on the other) as a covering and end walls are covered with chicken wire instead of plastic. Additionally, bottom skids are tuned upwards to allow easy pulling over grass when moving birds to fresh grass or new space. Roosting bars, nest boxes, feeder, and watering systems available for additional purchase. We recommend that birds are moved to fresh grass frequently or that fresh bedding/compost materials are added regularly.
For meat birds, we recommend no more than 150 birds if they are moved to fresh pasture daily. No more than 30 are recommended if coop remains stationary and bedding is added regularly. For layers, we recommend no more than 100 hens if coop is moved fairly regularly and hens allowed to range outside of the coop daily. No more than 20 hens are recommended if bedding/compost materials added regularly with occasional day ranging. The goal is happy healthy birds that are improving the soil and landscape.
