By | May 18, 2023

You think building home chicken coops is difficult? Think again! Anybody (yes anybody) can actually build one. All you need is an effective and sensible guide for you to get started.

A premium-grade coop is very easy to make as long as you can dedicate a few hours work and of course a little cash. You don’t have to break your savings for this. One important thing that I have learned over the years is to always make and follow a plan that addresses your needs.

Plan ahead and decide how many chickens you are planning to raise. 5, 10 or 20, yes the number will make a huge difference when planning home chicken coops. If you want the most favorable egg production then you must provide at least 3 square feet of grazing space foe every chicken.

After ironing out the plan, the next step will be to sketch the design. By design we’re not only talking about the aesthetic side but also the functionality of the coop. You want it to be well-ventilated, insulated and make sure that the chickens get proper lighting. Of course natural sunlight is still the best.

The third step in finishing home chicken coops will be purchasing all the materials you need. You really don’t need gazillion of materials. Lumber, wood, wires, nails and paint are all basic materials. If you do not have any idea about the exact materials that you need then it will help if you can make a research online or just buy a book.

The final step is to start the construction process. It will be cool if somebody can help you finish your project. Make sure you observe protective measures while building your chicken coop.
