Before starting the project, it is important to make a plan first. Here are the things you need to take into your consideration: budget, location, size, light, ventilation and predatosr. Let’s examine these one by one.Budget: This is the key factor in your whole plan. How much can you spend on the chicken coop may decide whether your plan can be accomplished or not. After all, this is building a chicken coop is meant to improve your life, not drag it down. What’s more, there is another part in the budget besides money: time. How many hours can you spend on building the coop, maintaining and cleanning it every week? These two answers are things you should find out at the very beginning.Location and size: I want to talk about these two points together, since they are deeply connected. Chickens need space to live comfortable and happy lives so they can lay eggs regularly. Find a level place that won’t have flooding on rainy days and measure it. Most likely it will be the place to build your coop. Generally, each chicken needs 4-5 square feet inside the coop for optimal health and egg production. With the size of the space and the flock you want to have, you can decide to build a small coop or a large one.Grab A Copy Click hereChicken is the kind of animal is dependent on the sun. They rise with the sun and rest with the sunset. Make sure your chickens get enough sunshine to keep them healthy.

After rain, good ventilation will help to dry the coop in a short time. And in summer, cool wind is important for the chickens. Windows are the best way to have good ventilation.The last but definitley not the least, consider predators. Predators can attack your chickens from the sky, land and even under ground. To protect your chickens from the top and from the ground, a sturdy fence is key. If your enemies come from underground, your fences should be there too, going at least a foot down.These are just some simple tips for building your own chicken coop, if you really want to build a good one in the most easy and money-saving way, I strongly recommend the ebook “Building a chicken coop.” In the book you will find more than you need in starting your chicken-raising experience.

Chicken Coops For Free Range Chickens in Your Backyard

by Texas State Archives

Free Range Chickens means that the chickens are either totally unfenced or are kept in a field so large that the fences have a little effect on their movement. It is in contrast to a yard, which uses fences to confine the chickens to a smaller area than they would normally use, or confinement, which denies them any access to the outdoors.

Importance of Free Range Chicken
Free range chicken is very important. It proves for a healthier lifestyle and also for happier chickens. They have the ability to roam a large area of space with all liberty. These chickens have ample grass and bugs to pluck from, and have the ability to lay their eggs where they please, not being confined to a small space. If you are looking for in raising your own chickens, then deciding on the perfect chicken house is a very important piece to this process. Because your chickens are “free range”doesn’t means that they also need some form of shelter.

Actually, shelter is just as important for free range chickens as it is for those kept in a coop, if not more important.

When raising free range chicken a big part is that your chickens have the opportunity to pretty much do as they please. Understand that they do still need some form of protection from the natural threats found. Free range chickens need a space that is large enough to roam in, but still keeps them safe at the harms’ way, so fencing in a large area of land is recommended. Another key aspect is a form of shelter for them to retreat to like a chicken coop. Although free range chickens can often be found bathing in the sun, they retreat to safety from rain. A large chicken coop is perfect for free range chickens. In fact, having multiple coops for them to retreat to be a great idea as many times there are a large number of chickens and therefore, need more space.

Choosing a Backyard
When choosing your free range coop take into consideration just how many chickens you plan to keep.

The more you have the more space you need proper care for and are considered a free range. A large and open chicken coop is ideal for free range chicken, that way they can come and go as they please. For chickens, the coop should be large enough to house them, and allow them the opportunity to the free range. Understand that “free range” does not mean that they run around wild, as they put them in harm’s way. It simply means they have a large amount of space to roam with little restrictions. There should be availability of natural light in chicken coop. There should also be plenty of food available for them to graze on throughout the day. Your chickens will feel as close to nature and freedom as possible, without endangering themselves.

By adopting these strategies, you’ll be well on your way to raising your own healthy, happy, free range chickens.
