Chicken House / June 11, 2018 / Maryellen
Make a plan. You need to prepare several things like nesting box with size 12x12x12 inches, enough ventilation or windows, and also water area with feeder in the coop. You can provide dust bath box because this is the way your chickens smooth down the mites in their body. So, what is your plan of chicken coop blueprints?
Mind the location. When it comes to choosing the location of coop, you need to consider the sunshine source along with the shade, since they will need natural light. Fresh air is needed and they need wind to stay alive. But do not put them in area with strong wind. You need to check them like two times per day so the coop should be in area that can be accessed easily. Coop smells badly, which makes it cannot to be located near your house or your neighbor’s, since they are pretty noisy sometimes.
Size does matter. In general speaking, each chicken will need 4 square feet of coop. The number of chicken that will live inside the coop determines the size of your coop. Chickens will not be happy if they have a too small coop. Yet, they will be stressed out. But of course you can provide less than 4 square feet of chicken coop blueprints as long as you put them mostly outdoor.
