Publisher's Summary

The chicken coop 101 for starting and raising chickens. 

If you’re looking for new ideas and tips (not visual plans) on chicken coops, then this audiobook might be for you. You will be able to make better decisions by figuring out which coop design is right for you, whether you should start a chicken coop (things you might have overlooked), and much more.  

This audiobook is great for someone who doesn’t know where to start.  

It’s great for useful everyday chicken information.  

In a nutshell, you will receive a fair share of valuable information, including:  

  • Suggestions for materials. 
  • Simple instructions, not all that complicated stuff. 
  • Beginners’ techniques and beginners’ mistakes. 
  • Save time and money by knowing what you’re doing. 
  • Caretaking tips for those who are starting from scratch.  
  • How to clean chicken coops.  
  • Fundamental steps on how to clean chicken coops.  
  • Freedom rules for safety and health.  
  • How to make building your own chicken coop inexpensive.  

This is a fantastic little guide for new chicken farmers. It gives several different insights on coops and raising chickens, and in that way, it’s kind of a two-fold guide. For detailed plans and measurements, readers should look elsewhere, but for the newbie who is still deciding, considering, or wondering where to start, this is the best way to go.

Decent book

Got the book in great condition and earlier than expected. This book has lots of ideas for chicken coops of all styles, shapes, sizes, for large farms, hobby farmers, or backyard farmers. We live in town and this book has the perfect chicken coop for our lifestyle.

Definitely worth a listen.

These are concept plans with measurements. I found two ideas that will help my next chicken house and I plan on combining the good ideas from them.

Full of great information

I really appreciate this book. It has a coop for every situation. It is also full of great advice from people seasoned in poultry care. Even if you don't use a design from this book to build your coop you will have enough information to design a really good one if you read it. A worthwhile purchase.

Ready to start!

In order to build a chicken coop with your own hands, it is necessary to take into account the following parameters: location, presence of a fence, proper microclimate, organic arrangement of bird seats, ventilation, lighting and winter storage.

Recommended!...

All these parameters are calculated based on the estimated number of birds; the chicken coop is built on their basis. That is, the more carefully you go to planning, the higher will be the productivity of birds with fewer possible rework. This building guide has a great description of what you need for it.
