Made of rattan and bamboo, the kubi is the traditional chicken coop used by the Ifugao. The Ifugao allow their chicken to roam around freely during the day; at night the chickens are kept in the kubi to protect them from predators. The kubi is hung under the house, usually about a meter and a half from the ground (Lane 1986, 76).
