Knowing how to build a chicken coop should not be your ultimate goal, rather, it should be on making an efficient one. Everyone can make a coop; even first timers can craft one without any help. However, you cannot expect that to address the things that will make the activity successful. It is vital that you learn to construct something that can give you the most benefits so that your efforts will be rewarded.
Everything starts with a plan, so it would be great that you have one ready before you get started. If you are making one on your own, consider including the following to ensure ending up with an effective chicken coop.
1. Look for the appropriate materials – evaluate the weather conditions in your area to identify the most suitable things for a coop. As much as possible, consider those that can last despite the changes in the elements so that it would last long preventing you to keep changing coops all the time.
2. Ease of maintenance – the ability to be tidied up easily should be among your foremost concerns because cleanliness is a huge requirement in keeping your chickens healthy. Aside from making a coop that is spacious enough for their mobility and better ventilation, you should also design it in a way that will make it easy for you to clean. You should install doors that open inwards rather than outwards, choose sliding windows over the swinging ones and make the flooring a bit inclined towards the door to avoid puddling when you are spraying water into the coop.
3. Addressing primary needs – you should also make sure that you are able to give all the foremost needs of your flocks. What are they specifically? Well, there should be enough air circulation, so you must avoid overcrowding a coop; enough sunlight must also get through the coop and then they must have an easy access to their food and water. However, you must also see to it that they will not be capable of creating too much mess, so position the feeder in a location where their necks can reach but their feet cannot.
No matter what the final appearance would be, if you have the above conditions incorporated, you will definitely have the best and most efficient coop around. Though you may just be a novice, if you are aware of all these needs, it may happen that people would come asking you how to build a chicken coop like yours.
