I thought of those when rubber was mentioned. Heavy... but heavy duty for sure! I think they would attach to the wall pretty well. I am day dreaming about this setup as I painstakingly pick up each goat berry and add it to my growing compost pile.
Yup, that’s my dream. 10 giant chicken coops in a row with huge honkin’ Tractor size doorways!
Tractor height VERY IMPORTANT !! When we designed our barn we made the aisle wide - 16ft. And the front door higher than the tractor with the roll bar up - now the hay guy can back in with his truck and unload.Great thinking!! I have been considering the extra wide entryways but I didn't think about tractor height. I'm definitely planning for the long term including old age, so convenience and ease are very important for the next builds. That's part of the reason I want to go with deep litter in the next dry lot, instead of everyday sweeping it will be a couple compost harvestings a year. Right now I sweep the poop, cart it over to the compost pile, then shovel out compost when ready - the deep litter helps take out a couple of those steps! The black jack is a great idea, I've seen that a lot on BYC and it seems to hold up great to moisture.
