QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS

Housing

 

Q. Tell me more about traditional housing?

In a traditional “flat deck” house 1/3 of the area is for the birds to dust and scratch in. The other 2/3 is raised and has feeders and drinkers and some perches whilst down through the middle of the shed there are the nest boxes where the birds lay their eggs.

Q. What is a Multi-tier shed?

“Multi-tier” is a new type of shed, as one young primary school child said when visiting such a shed “Wow an adventure playground for hens”. This system was developed by watching bird behaviour with cameras when different things and objects where added to the house. Over many years this system has evolved into what some use today. The shed has many levels where the birds can express all the natural behaviour that they would do in the forests where their ancestors came from.
