Building a Chicken Coop
Building your own chicken coop will be one of the best decisions you’ll make in your life.
Your own backyard chicken coop will provide you with daily fresh organic eggs for the kitchen. It will recycle your families food scraps and produce high quality fertilizer for your garden. Best of all, your family will be proud of the coop that you created with you own two hands.
It just makes perfect economic sense to build a chicken coop yourself instead of buying an expensive pre-built chicken coops. Pre-built coops have to be assembled anyway, you’re really just paying hugely inflated prices for the material.
