Choosing Your Chicken Coops

Friday, October 7th, 2011

Keeping chickens is a very rewarding hobby, but before you take the plunge you need to have all the necessary equipment ready for when you welcome them to their new home. The coop is one such necessity, as it protects the chickens from the harsh and robust British weather, and from potential predator attacks. To help you choose the right chicken coop for your lovely new chickens, we here at Cotswold Chickens have compiled this useful guide on how to buy the perfect home from the many chicken coops available.

What Size Do You Need?

How many chickens you decide to adopt will have some bearing on the size of the coop you ultimately choose, but then again so does the size of your garden. You need to take both into consideration and come to a conclusion before racing off to the nearest store to buy the first one you see.

It’s worth bearing in mind that chickens need enough space in which they can move about in and be happy.
