More information

Background information:
This henhouse is part of the Wolfshoek-farm. With a capacity of 100 chickens the barn is very small for today's standards. At the time, however, it was a nice size for a mixed farm. The chickens eat and drink from containers that were replenished daily. The chickens (who need plenty of daylight to lay many eggs) were not accompanied by a rooster, because the eggs (which were generally picked in the morning) were meant for consumption.

Architectural details:
The actual barn has seen better times, but the model is based on the original state. The side walls were built of half-brick masonry and the rear wall was made of wood. The facade had a large amount of glass that was placed in two horizontal bands. Inside there was an unfinished concrete floor and a so-called "roest", being the poles where the chickens were seated. The inside walls were - special enough - completely whitewashed. Something that obviously did not last long with a lot of fluttering chickens. The white liming was therefore an annual job and was mainly done in the spring.
