Description
The entrance for people who take care of the chickens is on one side of the chicken house. This entrance has a ramp and leads to a space where the chickens cannot go. The wall of the stall has a door and a hatch in wood. The hatch is at knee height and gives access to the eggs. Food and water containers are suspended behind the door.
The entry and exit for the chickens leading to an outdoor pen for the chickens are on the other side of the chicken house.
