Yellow Door Poultry Houses

Sizes of poultry houses and how many birds can be place per square meter.

What size house should I build?

We work on an industry standard of 12 - 16 birds per square meter. This can be much higher if you run your house professionally. I have a customer who places 24 birds per square meter and has fantastic conversion results. Remember there are regulations in each country that specfy how many chickens you can place per square meter. Organic poultry farming and free range chicken farming both have very specific limits.

 Placing too many chickens per square meter increases you risk of disease and other problems - also look a the laws governing bird placement in South Africa
