Build Your Own Chicken Coop?
Many people pay far too much for having chicken runs and coops built. Some of you may feel the only option is to buy expensive ready made hen houses.
I’ve found a much better way. (In a hurry - Click Here to get the full story).
If you think that building a chicken coop is too difficult you should think again. Even those of you who struggle to put up a simple shelf will be pleasantly surprised at how much can be accomplished when you have the proper plans and straightforward instructions.
Although this can be an easy and satisfying project, there are a few important tips to remember.
(Remember too how much money you are saving by building your own chicken coops.]
You’re building a chicken house? Great! Here are some tips:-
Work out the size of coop needed before construction. Chickens really need a minimum area of 4 square feet each to be comfortable. Check the size of your backyard, the area the hen house will take up and the remaining free space. You need to be sure that the chicken run and coops fit in with the backyard and don’t take up too much of the space.
Your neighbours will appreciate it if you position your chicken coops so as not to intrude too much on their view. A few shrubs or a fence with climbing plants might make a useful screen. However, the DIY Guide has plans for really good-looking chicken houses. Click here to visit the web site and see.
The chicken runs should be securely fenced to keep your poultry safe from predators like raccoons and weasels. The wire fence should be buried well into the ground and if possible netting should be used to cover the runs to guard against possible attacks from the air by predatory large birds.
Chicken coops of course should be lockable by night should there be any danger of human predators! They should obviously be watertight but also allow sufficient fresh air to circulate.
You may have considered a pre-built chicken house as an alternative. These arrive un-assembled, have to be re-assembled from plans and can be very expensive indeed. An excellent and much cheaper alternative is available.
