Description

Perfect for a trio of geese, or similar. Our Small Livestock Ark has been designed to meet the needs of anyone who needs to house just a few moderate sized animals in comfort. We keep some of our own breeding trios of geese in them, but they are equally suitable for pygmy goats, ducks or non-perching breeds of chicken, for example.While this ark is small, it is still robust. The front, back and base are all made from 9mm thick panels, so the ark is very strong. It needs no maintenance whatsoever, and because it won't rot or rust, it should last over 20 years. No tools are required to build this ark, and it can be assembled in less than 10 minutes. And dis-assembled even more quickly, if you want. An eye is provided at each end of the roof bar for a rope, should you wish to move the ark in one piece with a loader tractor. Hand holes are provided - two people can lift one of these arks.The central roof panel is easily removed, so adding fresh bedding and cleaning is a breeze. We don't know of any other arks offering this feature.This ark has a solid floor. As standard, it comes with a door which, when not in use, clips to the front of the house - nicely out of the way but always there if you want to use it. When closed, it is held securely in place by a quick release clip, and makes the ark fox proof. Two adjustable vents permit ventilation when the door is closed.

    An excellent product marred by an insecure door

    This is an excellent house for five or more geese. We have now bought three of these houses and would recommend them for ducks and geese. No problems with the geese stepping over the threshold. Easy to clean out - we rake out the muck and every few weeks lift off the lid and hose it out to give a more thorough clean. Does not rot in contact with the ground like a wooden house. The house is not cheap, but it should last for years and I consider it well worth the price. However the door is not fox proof at all. We lost three geese last year when a fox ripped the door off. The door is too flexible and the top can move sideways when it is in position to the point where the top of the door swings clear of the securing pin. You will need to provide some decent means of holding the door closed (a previous poster has suggested placing a weight against the door which should work). Being a professional product designer I have modified the house and door to make it fox proof. I replaced the flexible plastic door with a plywood door that has a wooden stiffening brace, and changed the way the door fits to the house so it won't swing sideways. I have bought two more houses since I modified the first one and carried out the changes as soon as the house arrived. I can send photos if you are interested.

    Another emergency goat shelter ...

    Once again we were caught short by our naughty goats refusing to let a new member of the herd share their accommodation! Green Frog worked their usual magic and despatched the ark within 24 hours of order, which was fantastic service. The ark is perfect for a medium sized goat with horns - plenty of room to turn around, and chew the cud ... We'll be back for more!

    Top (m)arks

    What a super design. It was actually good fun to put together: nothing missing and everything fitted. Ideal for my daughter's visiting ducks as it can be used as a garden storage area in between visits or just dismantled and neatly stored.

    Small ark

    My ducks really like the small ark. It was easy to put together apart from I did have to lengthen the side panel holes so that they would fit together. The plastic is a strong material and it is easy to clean out and disinfect. The only downside is the door which is not very easy to secure. It sits in place but can easily be removed so I do have to put things in front of it to prevent predators. A good product but some small adjustments needed. (GFD - We will look at the door design)

    Another good product from Green frog

    This is the second house we have bought from Green frog. The first was for our 4 ducks, and this one, a larger house, for 3 geese. Easily constructed, solid in construction and an absolute dawdle to keep clean. What more could you want.
