Before you decide to made the decision on the coop, you will have to know the number of chickens you will need to get. The greater chickens you will find the bigger the coop. Getting a coop that’s to small may cause chickens to battle, which can result in infections that may kill your flock. You’ll need a couple of ft per chicken, if you have 4 chickens you will need a coop that’s 8 square ft. Additionally, you will desire a run, so that your chickens have room to spread their wings.
Additionally, you will wish to place chicken wire underneath the coop, to avoid any creatures from digging their distance to the coop. I’ve had this happen before and that i learned my lesson from this. Nothing’s more unpleasant than seeing your chickens being taken with a fox. When the chicken house plans do not have here is how to put chicken wire, take it easy it’s not very difficult. You might be even to locate a YouTube video regarding how to place chicken wire.
You’ll find free or compensated chicken coops plans online. The disposable ones are great, but may they are doing have missing information. It’s my job to stick to compensated ones, which you’ll receive from amazon . com or perhaps a book shop. Just ask someone, in which the books on backyard chickens are and you’ll usually look for a couple books regarding how to develop a coop. I really bought my coop plans in the book shop plus they switched out pretty nice. I’ll be certain to publish some images of them below to get a concept of the kinds of coops that you could build.
This is a picture from the coop which i designed for my backyard:

SpecificImpulseGaming ‘n’ Stuff: Is this raccoon proof? Snake proof? We have those in our area and before we build this we would like to know.
MrKenjiro2012: We have dogs, but I like the design, don’t know how but after reading my comment, it does sound like I was complaining, sorry. However, I have to agree with the points I was trying to make about materials needing to be durable and light enough to handle, because once hens are in fixed positions, it’s hard for them to adapt to something else (egg layers).
Pitsamai Wilde: it okay Don’t you worry!! everyone not the same.
Dave Grant: For a book with projects that’s free, Woody Hyezmar’s Bible is basically good…, this project reminded me of his book somehow, search for it on the web!
