You sound just lovely, follow your heart and everything will grow, and your friends will be happy...the feathered ones et al.

Sorry ladies,  I don't think I know enough about earth plastering to make a permanent coop.  Right now the haybales have been stacked around a rabbit hutch for temporary accommodation for growing baby chooks.  I've placed corrugated plastic and a car cover over the top to keep the hay bales from getting wet.  When the chooks have gotten a little older I'll insert sticks into the sides of the bales for roosting. After the chooks have grown and I've found them suitable homes I'm going to use the hay to mulch my garden.  


Kirsty, it's lovely to hear from you again!

Hey Suzie, Do you need volunteers to help with building hen house? I'm curious about how a haybale house will stand up to wet west Akl weather & would like to have a go at building like this as well...maybe...

Hay bales were for sale at the Kumeu Horselands shop for 14 dollars each.

Can anyone recommend a place to buy hay bales? I want to build a hay bale chicken coop.

Just to make you aware that we have an environmentally friendly business called Eco Soda Blasters, which uses natural baking soda, to clean and strip a range of surfaces, without the abrasive effect of water blasting or sand blasting. In a home situation, stripping of swimming pools prior to painting, refurbishing wooden outdoor furniture and removing paint from an external hard wall surface are some of the services my husband Grant can provide. Removing marine anti foul from boats that are moored is a popular request. Machinery, cars, trucks, mag wheels, and so on are all in a day's work. Call Grant on 098176967 or check out our website for more information and examples.
