Welcome to my blog. This is where I will be documenting everything about my new pet project – building beautiful coops for chickens. Growing up, I always wondered why animals had to live in such bare, ugly houses when much more beautiful ones can be made for them. Many people think I’m crazy to invest so much time and money in constructing beautiful and functional homes for my chickens. Believe it or not, I have seen my chickens thrive in my coops. They are more active, produce better eggs and get more exercise running up and down the ladders I install in the coops.
Over the next few posts, I will publish about the recent coops I have been commissioned to make. I will also include steps to take if you are building a chicken coop for the very first time. One thing I keep in mind when building my coops is to try to imagine what a chicken would like. Most of it is common sense, things like shelter and safety from predators is very important and should never be overlooked. Next, the place it shits should not be above the place it eats, therefore, always place the food area away from the roosting areas.
Stay tuned, I will post more interesting articles soon!
