2 winter chicken coop / shelters

www.permies.com First, Tereza Fox, of foxbelly farm in Hillsboro, Oregon tells us about a ground level chicken shelter. It's sorta an earth-berm thing. The idea is that the chickens can stay warmer and, thus, require less winter feed. Next, Marina and Robert of Dell Artimus Farm talk about their year round chicken coop that is winterized with straw bales. They keep woodchips under the coop and they think the composting heat helps to warm the chickens. Free range pigs visit a lot during the video. Marina and Robert talk a little about how they haven't had predator problems this year.
