I recently decided of building a chicken coop of my own. By the way I own a farm house now, which I recently bought and shifted to. As a child I was born and raised in a city. Until recently I have always lived a city life. It was kind of boring and monotonous to for me. I always wanted to live in a country side and close to nature.
I thought having a chicken coop will complete my farm house so I decided to a little research about this. I went to the markets and found out about the costs involved in getting a ready made chicken coop, it was way out of my budget. So I thought of carrying on my research online. And that’s when I came across Bill Keene’s building a chicken coop. It was like a blessing in disguise. Never thought I would find something as amazing and precise.
As Bill Keene says, building a chicken coop was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. Looking at the cost of the book I quickly decided to go ahead and place an order. I couldn’t wait to start building my own chicken coop. When I read through the contents of the book, I realized that it could be so easy to build one on my own. In fact I used to think that it is not an easy job.
With the guidance provided in Bill Keene’s building a chicken coop not only I got an idea about the costs involved but I was able to save a considerable amount of time and money on the material that I bought for building it. Bill has mentioned many materials which are cheap and durable at the same time. I never though I could use common material such as boxes. And because he has used such a simple language to explain it all, I think even my 8 year old can do it without any hassle.
Since I had no knowledge on this subject, I thought its going to be hard to get my head around the contents of building a chicken coop. For a guy who was raised and spent most of his time in a city life will have little or no knowledge about building a chicken coop. Thanks to Bill for making it easy to not only design a cop of my choice but also explaining and guiding about how and where it should be placed.
Since Bill Keene has a history of many years in regards to poultry farming, the book is full of useful tips and tricks that can make your chicken coop safe from predators like coyotes, hawks and cats. Also he has a lot to share when it comes to what food the chicken must be fed, how to keep them healthy and keep laying eggs.
