CHICKEN COOPS – Housing chooks

The arrival of spring’s warmer weather is a great time to introduce chooks into your patch. More than just protection from weather and predators, a chicken coop needs to be well considered to ensure your flock stays happy, healthy and laying.

Integrating a flock of chickens into your patch has so many more benefits than simply a regular supply of healthy eggs. They process kitchen waste, fight common garden pests and produce nitrogen-rich fertiliser. When it comes to supplying them a cosy home, they have some specific requirements that need to be considered. But a well thought-out design – both in terms of the structure itself and how it fits into your space – will ensure you’re getting the most from your flock, while they stay happy and healthy.
