The construction of good poultry barns is one of the most important factors in keeping good poultry be they natural or improved. However
not every style of construction is appropriate, so the construction must take into account the exact requirements so that the pasture can produce the best results expected by the breeder.

The key elements in the construction of the poultry yard are;

Inhale fresh air at all times.
Always keep it dry.
Enough space.
It should be cost effective but sustainable.
Avoid entering dangerous animals and poultry.
It should have space to store food and water containers.
Avoid the wind during cold winters.

Air is important to every organism, so a chicken yard must be ventilated and give it a greenhouse and be able to absorb enough light.

In short, the windows of the pavilion must be large and large enough to enter the fresh air and provide the greenhouse.
These windows should be at least one meter high from the ground to allow air to flow over the chicken's heads.
Fresh air is not a breeze, so try to prevent the breeze from entering the poultry yard or else the chickens will suffer from flu and pneumonia and chicks can die of cold.
Build your pavilion against windbreaks and plant trees around the hen to reduce wind speed and keep shade from the hot sun and heat.

Since chickens are not aquatic birds like ducks, it is wise to ensure that their environment is free of moisture.

The chicken yard should be erected in an elevated position to prevent rain water from entering.
Build chickens for sleeping piles by placing one-meter-high rafters and hanging trees on them for the night, rather than lying on the ground or on the floor.
Dry patches are especially important for chicks and chickens. Inside the damp egg the eggs become very crunchy and sometimes easily decay and your efforts will be in vain.
The floors of the pavilion are well made of concrete but due to financial constraints the floor may be made of cracks (raised beams) or hardwood or sand that will be covered with residues of rice and wood waste.
To avoid humidity, it is advisable to place a plaza in an open and air-conditioned place.

The roof of the pavilion should be tight to prevent rainwater entering especially during the rainy season. The floor of the pavilion should be higher than the outside balance. The roof can be made of residue of corrugated pieces of tin, carpet and, if not, use suitable grass to house the area.

The chicken yard should not have too many columns or boards inside to make the poultry worker unable to perform his duties. This will cause him to spend a lot of time around the columns, especially when picking eggs or doing hygiene.

If you want to build a chicken yard first, prepare the necessary materials. Items such as trees or grass, nets or poles, nails or ropes are important to prepare in advance.
Second you must have a complete plan / map of the pavilion. On average, chickens need a space of 0.11 to 0.22 meters (1 to 2 feet in area) depending on the age of the chickens.

Poultry keepers eventually have to cover the costs of building shelters and food. If the cost is too high, you may make the herding work less profitable and this will make the herder a livestock worthless. But if you build your yard using readily available materials you will add even more benefits since you have reduced the operating costs of the project.

The chicken yard should be 15 m to 22 m wide, 3 to 4.5 m wide by 5 m high. This yard can care for 100 adult chickens at a time.


The construction of the barns is emphasized in improving natural poultry raising;
Increase production and reduce the mortality of chicks through various disasters such as puppies, herons, cats, dogs and chickens that wander randomly.
It is also expected that chickens that are restrained in the yard and placed in a mixed diet will increase production significantly
