Why do we need housing for poultry?

Topic Progress:

A good poultry house should protect the birds from

  • floods, rain water, direct sunlight, draughts,
  • vermins like rodents,
  • predators like cats, dogs, mongoose, squirrels, other bird eating mammals,
  • snakes and other reptiles
  • Unwanted guests – source of losses through diseases and theft

A good poultry house should thus be well constructed to protect the birds from environmental extremes and hazards.
