    Kalamaku,
    If you meant plasctic Barrel is ok....if tin Barrel no good....coz it is too hot during summer season,if winter it is easly get rust and too cold for the chickens...Teepee is probably for me is the best....

    i would say teepee..

    in pI its going to be more affordable also

    since you have alot of choices of making it naturally with

    bamboos, wood etc.. or cement..

    but barrel is somewhat not very suitable on PIs kinda wheather

    Bradda in Hawaii the teepees are the best but if you have access to free barrels just cut two holes across from each other like a teepee so the trades can blow through. And the birds can still get out of the heavy rains.

    Re: wahts better barrel or tippi

    i use 9 mm metals for support of the cement they act as the bones of the structure..

    my tepees are 4ft and 6 inches high and the width is 24 inches

    u dong need to use a bigger metal than 9 mm just make sure ur cement is on good concentration dont put too much sand cus it will make it wear off easy due to rain and heat.. i use 1 bag of cement good for 2 finished teepees

    ive also tried used jeepney tires. affordable because its considered scrap material. it also serves as a good shed in summer because of the properties of rubber.

    Re: wahts better barrel or tippi

    It depends on your location (consider the climate) and availability of materials. In mainland US, barrels are advisable because of winter weather. In the Philippines, teepee or any equivalent is highly recommended and is more economical. You can make two or three concrete teepees with the price of one plastic barrel.

    If you have an old wine barrel, cut it cross-sectional and you'll have shelter good for two. Used old wine barrel on mine.
