MY CHICKEN HOUSE
The purpose of a chicken coop is to protect chickens from bad weather - heat, cold, wind and rain and secure them from predators-especially foxes and cats. One method to protect chickens is to put an isolation material between two layers of wood or metal. As too much heat can prove to be fatal, windows should be oriented in such a way as to prevent overheating, and proper ventilation measures should be taken to prevent infectious bronchitis and overheating as well. The hens can be released outside by daylight but should be locked in a coop at night
FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT
Are you interested in teaching your children farm-like responsibilities?
Raising chickens is one of the fastest-growing family hobbies in America and can be fun for the whole family! Having chickens in your own coop at home is so much more than getting fresh eggs... It’s a wonderful experience for the whole family. Children especially love interacting with the chickens and most are eager to learn about taking care of them.
