Small Livestock Ark

Livestock ark made from recycled plastic and available in four colours.

Our small livestock ark has been designed to house just a few moderate sized animals in comfort such as pygmy goats, ducks or non-perching breeds of chicken.

Design features:

  • Made primarily from 9mm thick recycled polyethylene
  • Perfect for a trio of geese or similar.
  • Robust structure with a solid floor
  • When not in use the door clips to the front of the house
  • Two adjustable vents permit ventilation when the door is closed.

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.

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.

Cleaning

The central roof panel is easily removed, so adding fresh bedding and cleaning is a breeze.

Maintenance

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.

ADD TO BASKET

Recycled Plastic

This livestock ark is manufactured from flat sheets (2.4 x 1.2 m) of recycled plastic, typically 6, 9 or 12 mm thick, sourced from a plastic recycler.

Standard sheets are black in colour. A thin coating can be applied during manufacture to provide a coloured surface on one side. Additives are used to make the plastic ‘UV stable’, to minimise colour fade when exposed to sunlight. Sheets are smooth on one side and have a lightly textured ‘hatch’ pattern on the other.

The recycled plastic is made entirely from used food-grade plastic, primarily post-industrial waste. All plastic waste from the manufacturing process is returned for recycling to make more plastic sheet – this makes manufacture almost a zero waste process.

Some of the off-cut plastic is recycled to make the small 'Pi Clips' supplied to hold the houses together. The metal fasteners are made from stainless steel or other rustproof alloys, to provide a long outdoor life. Being metal, they can all be recycled.

Gardening for good

The Eden Project is an educational charity. The money you spend in our shop helps to fund our social and environmental projects.

For example, our horticultural apprenticeship scheme is training individuals up to be professional horticulturists, helping to remedy the UK's real shortage of skilled gardeners.
