A birdie hut is a hut that is specifically designed to protect the birds from the elements (rain/wind/etc). These can be purchased or made. The ones that are purchased are approximately 4ft x 8ft with a 20 inch roof and an opening on two sides (you place these sides away from the direction of the wind so as to provide cover for the birds).

What company sells these bird huts? About how much are they?

A birdie hut is a place for the birds to get out of the weather and stay warm/dry. The ones we use are approximately 4x8 and stand 18 inches off of the ground. They are completely enclosed except for two openings that are placed away from the direction of the prevailing winds They are formed out of fiberglass or plastic. Other farms us 2 4x8 sheets of plywood and fasten them together in the shape of a teepee.

I'd like an explanation of Birdie Huts myself. We may be using something similar: 48 inch diameter x 4'long culvert cut in half and then firmed up with 2x4" studs across the bottom. Kinda like a small Quonset that the birds can get out of the sun or, more importantly here in SD, the Rain/Hail that comes with frequent thunderstorms. I agree with r.thomas that outside holding/flight pens are best. All the reasons (s)he listed and, if your primary market will be hunting/shooting preserves, the fact that good cover will keep the birds from becoming habituated to humans. Nothing feels less like hunting than having to kick a bird to make it fly. Also: being outside allows the birds to adapt themselves to changes in the weather (again, primarily rain)buy rolling in the soil and developing the natural oils that help protect their feathers from soaking up water and chilling their core temps.
