Chooks part 1 - the chook shed

The chook shed is, quite simply, a work of art. Designed for easy human access and chook comfort, it's made almost entirely from recycled materials, leftover pallets, and our old backdoor from our previous home - a 1920s bungalow in Wahroonga, Sydney.

The run is fully enclosed, and we open the door to let the chooks forage when we can. We need to give special thanks to Mandy & Grant Kamholtz in the construction stages, and Mick & Jo Miners for the supply of the roofing tin. We have afternoon shade from the nearby snowgum tree, and nesting boxes accessible from the outside.
