To have the best in chicken houses takes planning and preparation. A structure that is both place of production and a place of safety. Production of eggs of course is a huge benefit of poultry. Safety is a constant need for birds of any kind. Predators of all kinds love to eat fowl or eggs, if not both.
Finding a good location should be priority one. An area that is flat and easy to get in and out of is should be looked for. Location is crucial for fighting the local weather. Avoiding direct winds and rain toward openings is always a good idea.
Once the location is found the next step is to choose a design. Practicality and function should take precedent here. Something that will do a job that is required of it and allow for ease of use as well. Design will vary with differences in needs or geographic locations. Weather can be a huge issue and needs to be dealt with in the design phase.
The size of the building for housing any kind of animal is also a prime issue to consider. Animals of all kinds need their living space for health and happiness. Being safe and protected will keep them that way.
With a larger flock and a bigger building to house the birds comes a need for more functional parts as well. Functions such as nesting boxes and making sure there is plenty of roosting room. Nest boxes are a necessity for egg production and roosts are a necessity for proper sleeping. Without enough nest boxes the eggs will be laid upon the floor. Roosts allow fowl to rest and sleep through the night.
Feed and water supply is the final peg in the puzzle. With a proper number of feeders and water dispensers the project will be completed. A good ramp and door, that latches, will allow for cooping them in safely for the night. Keep the vermin out in a good home for any flock and enjoy the benefits of poultry.
