Why A Coop

Chickens are like everyone else and would like a home of their own. If you are willing to share your home with the your chickens then by all means do so. Your chickens certainly won't mind. However, If you wish to enjoy your chickens while each of you having breathing room, a chicken coop is the way to go.

A coop consists of a hen house and a run. It should be large enought to hold all the your chickens comfortably (plus yourself on occasion) and be safe from predators.

The henhouse should have a nest for egg laying, a roost for sleeping and a heat source if you do not live in one of those climates that are unfairly warm and pleasent year round.
