Chicken House Remodel

The chicken house remodel began in April 2011 and was completed in early June 2011 for the arrival of the chickens. The chicken house is a typical 1930’s style having two rooms and the ability to comfortably house 200 birds.

Below are photos from our 2011 restoration project and the first batch of chickens!

Please don’t hesitate to call us with any questions you may have. Our phone number is 605-344-2560, or email us at:englandfamilyranch@yahoo.com

The small room serves as our brooder house and the large room is home for the laying hens.

Mobile Chicken House

This Spring, we bought a new Wilson stock trailer which was proudly made in South Dakota! The next question was “What to do with our old trailer?”

The trailer has now become a dual functioning piece of ranch equipment. George made moveable chicken nest boxes with hooks when remodeling our chicken house in 2011. Now he has created a portable roost with hooks and made a swinging bar for holding the feeder. All of the equipment inside the trailer is removable so the trailer can still be used as a stock trailer as needed. He used tin from the 2007 barn remodel to keep the elements off of the chickens so they can stay warm and dry in their mobile unit. He cut and placed plexiglass on the back gate and front sides so we could see what is happening inside the trailer when hauling livestock.

The chickens will have fresh pasture daily and will be fertilizing various areas of the pasture with their manure.  While they enjoy their summer home,  we will be cleaning out their winter chicken house and the vegetation in their winter chicken yard can grow back lush to wait for the chickens return in late Fall.
