Our ducks and hens have a standard garden shed with roosting bars and nest boxes as well as a second building which is our recycled shop cut down to size and in its 12th year. With a 30 foot square pen with 6 foot high chicken wire and another foot of wire under ground a safe place to be when not enjoying the delights in the garden. Not the most stylish of pads but certainly practical for the number we have (9 ducks, 2 hens and a rescued cockerel). The cockerel was not planned after our experience with Chanticleer the psycho however we could not reject him when a neighbour turned up with him after her dog had been using him as a chew. Lucky is more docile and is not into hunting Sarah and is making good progress finding his voice and eager to greet his female companions now.
With the upsurge in popularity of hen houses the range of accommodation is certainly increasing. Some are certainly more suited to the city than out here in rural cork however I do like the green one at the bottom.
