Build a chicken coop shouldn’t be a chore. First of all, you need to know how much chicken you are going to have. For one chicken you should have at least 4 sq. ft. Plan this first, and make the ideal space for your coop. It’s also recommended to make a little bigger than the recommended space requires for each chicken.
Plan a chicken coop that you want to keep them safe and comfortable by also choosing the right material such as chicken wire and don’t forget to build it 2-3 feet from the ground so their feet will stay dry during the rainy season. Build a perch area for them to sleep and it also offer enough space for this so they don’t get too cramped. Make a nesting area for the hen’s egg and keep it at least 4 inches deep to keep the eggs safe. Make sure that there is sufficient airflow by adding a window or vent because like all animals, they also require fresh air so they can’t easily get sick.
