How to choose a Chicken Coop your hens will love

Written by Outpost Buildings on September 22nd, 2017.      0 comments

If you’re considering getting some hens then there are some things you need to know about hen houses to make sure your hens are happy.

Fresh eggs from your own hens are great but hens can be a bit fussy about when and where they lay. It's worth getting the coop right, otherwise you will be simply feeding your birds for no result.

There are heaps of designs for chicken coops online and if you have a bit of time and the ability to hammer a few nails, you will be able to find plans to build you own or you can buy one of the many kitsets available. Whatever you decide to do, here's a list of things you should make sure your hen house has to make sure you get your fair share of eggs.

  • A dry, draft free place for your hens
  • Perches for them to sleep on at night
  • Next boxes for them to lay eggs in
  • Access to food & water
  • Ventilation & light
