Your chicken house should have good ventilation especially during hot periods or summer. You should open the windows or door during hot periods to get good ventilation. So you should provide them in the coop.

The outside run should be built in such a way that no other animals can enter into the run area. In addition to this, the run area should be protected with chicken wire, which should be dug deep enough to prevent the entry of predators like Bandicoots.

2. Lighting

Next to ventilation, your chicken requires light. The best way o obtain required light is building the coop in the place where it gets sufficient sunlight during daytime. In addition to this, you should provide proper lighting during night time by providing one ceiling light for a smaller coop that houses 10 chicken or more light for larger coops.

3. Easy Cleaning

Chicken Coop- A perfect Business for Home makers?

Nowadays most of us feel so difficult to run our family within your household budget, which is mainly due to skyrocketing price of the ordinary items- pulses to sugar. This is the high time to start a part time business to meet out our demands. I discussed this matter with my office friend. He only suggested building chicken coop and start raising chickens.

Benefits Of Building Chicken Coop
  • You can get fresh eggs not only for your family, but also you can sell them the same to the nearby shops
  • Chickens eat a lot, and are constantly on the prowl for weeds, bugs, slugs, and other tiny critters to snack on
  • Composted chicken manure is a perfect gift to both flower beds as well as vegetable garden
  • Releasing them during the day time will help you to get the soil being stirred well
If your wife is a perfect home maker, you can ask her to look after this chickens with chicken coop to reap the benefits of chickens as well as you can start building your own vegetable garden to get fresh vegetable for your home using the chicken manure. I have started this part-time business along with my wife. Your wife will also be very happy because she also wanted to do some part time business. Still, why are you waiting? Discuss this matter with your wife to reap the benefits of raising chickens in chicken coop.


At what age, you can let off chicken from the coop?

Still, some of the chicken raisers are having the habit of releasing their chicken out of the coop in the early morning to graze in their garden and made them to come back before night on its own to the coop. If you're not aware of this procedure, most of the Indian farmers are practicing this method of chicken rearing.

But you should know at what age do chickens have to be before you can let them roam freely and they’ll return to the coop at night.

Generally you can practice this method from the age of 3-4 weeks. Beware!!! You should not practice this method, if you are having wild animals in your area. Don't think that wildlife will not take hens during daylight! So an eye on them during day time also!

A good chicken coop must be built in a wider area so that the chickens feel comfortable in a spacious coop. Don't make mistake of loading the chicken in a smaller area such that the chickens are too close to each other that in turn will lead to suffocation and will also affect their productivity. It is said that, in an ideal chicken coop plan each chicken has 4 square feet of space. For example if you have four chickens then the total space required would be 4'X4'. It is also important to ensure that you have an access inside of the chicken coop. This is where most of the coop plans fail.

You need to enter the coop on a daily basis to feed the chickens, change the water,
collect eggs and most importantly to clean it.

The most important and the challenging task is protection of the chickens. Predators like rodents, cats, fox, and wolf eagerly wait for a chance to pounce on your chickens and have a stupendous meal. A well protected chicken coop will make sure that these predators don't have a chance to even come near your precious chickens.

To have protected chicken coop install locks on the doors and make sure that you keep the coop locked during the night. Cover the ventilation with a wire mesh, making sure that there are no opening for the intruders to enter. Put a fence around the coop with at least 12 inches underneath the ground and 4 ft above the ground so that there is no entrance for the predators.

So friends if you are building your own chicken coop then it is best to work chicken coop plans rather than making it up as you go which will end up spending up double the amount. So think twice about investing in a good chicken coop as it will reap lot of benefits in the long run.

is very easy, but providing comfort to your chicken should be your priority. You should take utmost care to inspect the construction plans before starting to build a chicken coop.

Though you have spent more money to buy a ready-made coop, it should provide perfect environment for the chickens to lay more eggs. Otherwise it will be waste of material, money and time.

If you want more eggs from your chicken, you should provide proper space. Neither more space nor less space will help your chicken to lay more eggs.

Overcrowding will cause the chicken to loss weight and ultimately, there will be loss of egg production.

If you provide more space, the chicken will roam more frequently and the energy will be wasted for the activity and the number of eggs per bird will get reduced. More over, it will consume more feed also.

You can make your chicken more comfortable by providing perch in the coop. The perch should be placed just 8 inches above the ground level. Absence of perches will make the birds to perch on the feeders or in the nesting boxes and it will defecate on the places where you don't want to have them.

You should provide one nesting box per six chickens. This is the thumb rule. Your chicken will feel secure and comfortable, if the chicken box provides dark environment. The nesting material includes straw shavings, which should be 4 inches thickness inside the nest box. Nesting material will help you to get perfect white/brown eggs without any damage.

1. Ascertain the Chicken Coop Size

My advice is go for large sized house because the number of chickens will be increased in future due course (You can increase the number of chickens within few days of start your breeding plan of hens).

2. Don't Spend Lot of Money on a ready made Coop

You will be fascinated with the prebuilt coops. But the builders will include the premium for their services in the rate of the equipment. If you make your own chicken coop, it would be fairly inexpensive than the ready made one.

3. Provide enough space in your Yard

You should provide adequate space in your backyard. This is one of the prerequisite to build a backyard coop.
4. Proper ventilation provision is must

If you want to raise healthy chickens, then you need a fresh supply of clean air. This can be achieved by proper ventilation which will also prevent build up of ammonia and carbon dioxide along the inner walls. Build windows that can be opened and closed.

5. Provide Proper Light

Hens are natural light lovers. Provision of proper light source is must for your chickens to lay plenty of eggs throughout the year. Try to provide light through out the daytime and lightime. Light will induce pituary gland, which inturn help the chicken to start lay in correct time and high number of eggs in the lifetime.

Never under estimates the damage those predators can cause to your chickens. Have proper protection in the house run so that animals cannot dig underground.

5. Make sure predators can’t get in

Predators such as Bandicoots, coons, opposums and, owls can cause damage to your chickens. Hence you should provide proper protection in the house run to avoid digging underground by the predators. More over, you should build the chickencoop on an elevated platform and also try to build a fence about one foot deep in order to prevent the predators entry into the coop.

6. Proper positioning of the feeders -

The thumb rule for placing feeders in the coop is 10-15 centimetres above ground. If you place the feeder lesser than this measurement, you'll notice more crowd around the feeder and there is possibility of more wastage. If you increased the height of the feeder more than this, the larger birds will tend to take more feed than the shorter one.

7. Building the coop off the ground

This is an excellent idea. Yes!!! Building a coop above the ground level will help your chickens to produce more eggs and also get prevented from natural predators.

8. Select the suitable construction materials

You should take into account your local climate before selecting the construction material. If you are living in the warmer year-round climates, you should use wire walls or doors, but if you live in cold climate and wet for part of the year, build insulated wall as well as a solid one. This decision will make your chicken to live stress-free environment.

9. Adequate Floor space is essential

The normal floor space per chicken is 4 sq.ft. Try to adhere to this floor space. Don't compromise with the floor space! This will help to stop your chickens from stressing due to cramping.

10. Perch for your Chickens

You should give ample space for building a perch (roost) for sleeping of your chicken within the coop. This will help your chickens to sleep well as well as lay more eggs. Try to use perfect smooth lumber for building a roost.

In the maintainence of the chicken coop, cleaning is considered to be most time consuming activities. Giving proper slanting in the floors will help your cleaning job of the coop very easy.

Get To Know About Chicken Coop

A chicken coop is nothing but a structure in which live chickens are maintained in the backyard chicken farm. It is also called as a chicken shack or chicken house by few chicken breeders.

Chicken Coop Materials

Most of the chicken breeders build their own chicken coop using wood, straw, and chicken wire. These materials can easily be available at your local lumber / hardware store. When I built my first chicken coop with my children, I used a few wood pieces and tiny frame of chicken wire at the top.

Actually we built this simple chicken coop for two new day old chicks we got from the nearby farm. I redesigned my chicken coop as our flock grew after reading a simple e-book on "How to build your own chicken coop?"

I inquired the near-by store for buying a ready-made chicken coop. The cost of each chicken coop ranging from $200 to $500 dollars range.

I refused to procure those overrated chicken coops from the store and constructed a coop with raised platform. I succeeded and for the past few days, I am raising pet chickens effortlessly. By this process of building my own chicken house, I saved nearly 250 dollars, which is a big money during this economic crisis period.
