Chicken mansion

Kevin Davis built a spectacular "Chicken Mansion" on his Kentucky acreage, complete with a wire roost, outside entry nest boxes, predator-proof runs, and automatic feeders. Take a look at these great photos!
  • Safe and sound

    Kevin Davis' chicken coop measures 8' x 12'. He fenced in a 20' x 20' x 6' tall run area. The run fencing is 1" x 2" welded wire with poultry wire over the top. "Before I completed this I lost one chicken to a hawk," he says.<br><I>Want to learn more about how Kevin built this amazing chicken mansion?

  • Predator-proof

    To make the coop and run predator proof, Davis buried two feet of wire fencing under the dirt to prevent anything from digging in.

  • Mess collection

    "I think that 90% of the mess is collected in the sand beneath the roost," Davis says.
