Developing Chicken Houses And Keeping Hens With Regard To Beginners

Yesterday, I had a great opportunity to visit some friends who pretty much “live off the land”.  When I say “live off the land” they grow their own food and raise chickens and other animals.  I spotted several nicely built homes that had fences around them.  

I was curious on what it was, and then my girl (who is 2 years old) told me “Chickens Daddy” right away.  

I was pretty dazzled with how adequate they were.  This made me think of stories of the old days my grandmother used to tell me about how there was not any corner store stores around and how neighbors would trade their crops and chickens.  

During this economy, I thought to myself what it would most likely take to get a chicken coop started.  I started to look around online to find out how popular this trend is getting.  People are bored with having 100.00 dollar grocer’s bills and the price of beef is stupid.  (So what would I want to get this started?) I thought to myself.  So I started doing a little analysis.  I would have liked to get all the facts along with what my buddy was telling me and find what all I might need to do.

But, after you get into the swing of how it is possible to get started it really is a simple process after finding this out.  Here are some easy tips I learned that were vital when setting up your first chicken coop.  


When building you need a design that withstands the elements such as rain, snow, snow and hail.  Most significantly you wish to a design that protects your chickens from predators.  


You want to build a coop that provides proper ventilation and provides easy cleaning to spray off walls and roosts.
