Modular Panel Gamecock Pens: Octagon Square Rectangle

All of the sample dimensions here are provided to facilitate computations.

Octagon gamecock pen

  • Panel Width: 2 units
  • Modular Panels: 8
  • Pen Sides Dimension: 2 units (1 modular panel)
  • Pen Perimeter: 16 units
  • Pen Area: 19.31370849898476 square units

Square gamecock pen

  • Panel Width: 2 units
  • Modular Panels: 8
  • Pen Sides Dimension: 4 units (2 modular panels)
  • Pen Perimeter: 16 units
  • Pen Area: 16 square units

Rectangle gamecock pen

  • Panel Width: 2 units
  • Modular Panels: 12
  • Pen Length Dimension: 8 units (4 modular panels)
  • Pen Width Dimension: 4 units (2 modular panels)
  • Pen Perimeter: 24 units
  • Pen Area: 32 square units

Modular Panels and Pen Configurations

Modular panels are handy for different pen configurations as needed.

An octagon, with the same number of modular panels or perimeter, has more area than a square.

A rectangle, with 50% more in number of modular panels or perimeter, has 100% more area than a square and has 31% more area than an octagon.

Circle gamecock pen and Octagon gamecock pen

A circle pen has its share of benefits to gamecock chickens (roosters, hens, and chicks). Gamecocks move positively different and active in a circle pen.

A circle is closer to an octagon in shape than a square and more so than a rectangle.

Hence, these benefits can also be achieved in an octagon pen.
