Barn and Chicken coop


Barn/Chicken coop:[1]

A barn and chicken coop require a Mezuzah to be placed on the doorpost of their entrance.[2] However the Mezuzah must be covered in such areas.[3]

[1] 286/1

[2] Michaber ibid

The reason: As a) People enter and leave through it; and b) The areas are not dirty enough to be exempted from a Mezuzah. [Shach 286/2] However places which are very dirty are only obligated to have a Mezuzah if they serve also as ones sleeping quarters. [Shach ibid]

Other opinions: The Rambam exempts these areas from a Mezuzah.

[3] Taz 286/1
