Poultry Houses Fixtures PlansThese plans and articles are taken from Poultry Houses and Fixtures, eighth edition, published by Reliable Poultry Journal Publishing Company of Quincy, Illinois in 1919. Price $1.00

It was filled with poultry house plans and layouts for small farms and back yard enterprises, many of which had been produced by universities and the US department of agriculture.

At the time this was published, it was possible for a 10 acre poultry farm to support a family and 2 layouts are provided along with plans for coops and poultry houses of various sizes

Most of the model enterprises combined poultry with orchard fruit crops and pasture / arable rotations. Stocking densities, even in what they termed intensive systems, were low by modern commercial standards. This was to reduce the amount of disease and reduce parasite loads rather than any welfare concerns.
