Hoop houses in progress

Our flock has grown this spring so we are adding a simple PVC hoop house so the Littles and Middles have some more shade. We are also working on larger hoop house made with cattle panels that may serve as a home for some of the Roos. Here are some pics of our progress and a link to where our plan ideas came from. Of course we usually make slight modifications along the way.

Now that we are on a roll with the hoop houses we should have shelter and protection for everyone. We will let you know how we and they like them!
