If you’re looking to build an easy chicken house, there are a few key elements that you must make sure you do. So many chicken farmers make building their poultry houses so much more difficult than it really needs to be.
In fact, some will spend months trying to perfect it! This is completely unnecessary because if you have the right building plan, you can have your own fresh supply of eggs in as little as three days. Start on Friday and Monday morning you’ll be feasting on a fresh egg omelette.
Here are some of the most important points to know about how easy chicken house building can be.
Survey Your Land Area First
Imagine spending weeks working on a poultry house to find out that the land you built it on wasn’t ideal? Talk about frustrating!
Sadly, many farmers make this mistake. It doesn’t matter if you’re building on a very large farm or if you live in an urban area and are building just outside your back door. สร้างบ้าน
The land you’re building on still needs to be appropriate so the coop stays standing over time. If the land isn’t, brace yourself for some serious repair jobs down the road – which can get very costly ($1000 upwards).
I’ve seen some people have to rebuild their entire coops just because they built in the wrong spot. It’s a mistake you just don’t want to make.
A proper easy chicken house building guide will explain exactly what to look for in the land area.
Consider Building Materials Carefully
The next thing you should be doing is making sure you are considering the building materials you are going to use very carefully. You can save a great deal money with building supplies for your chicken house, but you can also run into a host of problems.
Some cheap materials work great – others…not so much. Building materials need to be evaluated for climate control, durability, and overall looks and aesthetics.
Do Not Ever Overlook Protection
Possibly the absolute greatest mistake that those who want to build an easy chicken house make is forgetting about protection. They get the coop standing and think the jobs done.
But it’s not! Not even close.
If you have a number of predators in your area, the most important part of the job will be to build a good fence to keep these other animals out.
Consider the fact that in as little as thirty seconds your entire coop of chickens could be dead and you can clearly see why this is important. And don’t kid yourself, chicken coop murders happen time and time again. If you don’t think it could happen to you, you might want to rethink that. It can, and it will – unless you get a proper fence built.
