Useful sites: Feeding and Housing

I realised too late that by copying and pasting I was deleting the name of the original poster of the 'useful links', this was unintentional - a duh! moment. Thanks to all who have researched the links and shared them with us - I hope you will continue to do so.

Solar blankets - used by dog owners to cover cars in hot weather to keep inside of the car cooler, but could also be used to shade and cool a chicken run in really hot weather:

Hi my name is phil

this is my website i make bespoke poultry houses to order. I am continuing to make new designs which are all displayed on my site.

I make houses sized for 1-2 bantams/chickens, 2-4 bantams/chickens and houses sized for 5-7 bantams/chickens.

The houses all have a nesting box on the side featuring a full lifting roof, slate roof, front ramp door, inside perches. The larger houses have a full opening back door for easy cleaning.

All the houses are poultry friendly treated and poultry friendly painted.

I wont go on too much as im sure if you are interested you will find what you need on the site or you can email me any time for anything.

Many thanks for your time,


Phil
