Hi there I am new to this forum i would like plans to a shed called a chook clock can anybody help me even a photo cheers jenny
Welcome to ALS.
I’ve seen a good video on how to build one, will try to find it for you. Organic Gardening Australia did an article on one here
Here is the video series that show how to build an enclosed mandala chook permaculture garden. Looks rather nice, I think.
Hi Jenny :wave: and welcome to ALS.As you have already discovered there are good folk on here who can answer just about every question!Usually very quickly indeed! :tup:
I just watched those videos – excellent!The removeable gate is very neat.If I had the resources and was starting from scratch I would definitely do something like that.
It’s really a more practical design and easier to work than the Linda Woodrow dome system which I used.
The ‘clock” in the OG article has the whole chook house in the centre,but there’s no reason why you couldn’t just collect a few chooks from elsewhere when needed for “work” in the video version.
When we considered a similar layout, I designed a central chook house that had doors on each side so you could open whichever door led to whichever garden you wanted them in, with one main door for our access. Would have worked really well, but we decided to have a much larger yard instead considering the number of chooks we have.
Awesome links BV.
Thank you! Can’t wait to show hubby and get him all inspired. :tup:
When I was eight, we moved onto a friend’s property. The chook shed was old and not very user friendly, so my mum, my sisters and I built a new one (well, us girls really only helped dig out the ‘moat’ that became the land bridge and island). The whole area was divided into 3 – one area for the owner’s chooks, one for our bantams and one for our big chooks/ducks/turkeys. Great memory!
thank you for your help 🙂
