Chicken & Turkey Housing
Chicken & turkey housing is the perfect shelter to protect them from the weather. If your are a small or large scale poultry farmer and you need shelter then our polytunnels can offer a cost effective solution.
Poultry of all types require housing that will protect them from the wind and rain, as well as the effects of rapid changes in temperature. The poultry housing should be dry at all times, and provide good ventilation while being free from draughts.
Significant market demand exists for free range poultry production for:
- Laying birds
- Table birds
- Game birds
Both the consumer and legislation are demanding that birds should be allowed to naturally roam, bathe and scratch within their environment. The EU Freedom Act means that poultry housing must move away from cage accommodation.
Our poultry tunnels are designed to balance the health and welfare of the animal, with the needs and well being of the producer, the consumer, the industry and the environment. Our polytunnels provide adequate space for movement and exercise, an environment that allows the animal to express natural behaviours, and a setting where aggressive interactions are minimised.
Our poly tunnels are one of the most cost efficient methods of housing poultry. We can cater for the requirements of all areas of the poultry industry, from the small holder to the large scale commercial operator.
As a specialist in bespoke design and fabrication of polytunnels, we are able to offer you the absolute match for your requirements and deliver it on time, with precision and care. We will ensure that with our after sales care you will be extremely satisfied from concept to completion, after all value is a speciality and quality is priceless.
