"Rock Chicken House"
"Rock Chicken House"
Chickens, Poultry houses
This published photograph shows a poultry house constructed of rocks. The caption for the image says, "Ray Deitz, of the Marketing Department, is shown above as he inspects a broiler raised by Sam W. Gibbs of Fairview. Mr. Gibbs constructed his broiler houses from rocks picked up on his property at a cost of approximately $25.00 per house, which means more profit on the broilers."
