Description

Plan, customize, and build the perfect home for your flock, brood, or clutch.

Licensed by the National FFA Organization, our acclaimed series of How to Raise guides has helped countless first-time animal owners confidently care for their new companions. How to Build Chicken Coops provides complete, thorough, and easy-to-follow instructions on building a coop. More importantly, it provides answers so chicken owners don't have to waste time searching online for advice.

If you are involved in the FFA, interested in starting an urban or suburban hobby farm at home, or just curious about the country living or urban farming lifestyle, raising chickens is a great way to get started without a substantial investment of time or money. Building your own coop allows you to customize it to meet your needs—and it will save you money too!

How to Build Chicken Coops is not just a collection of plans, but a compendium of the background and insider information for chicken owners. How much space will you need? What is dust bathing? How many nest boxes and windows will your coop need? How much will it cost? What steps do you need to take to keep your chickens safe from predators?

All of these questions, and many more, are answered in How to Build Chicken Coops. This book takes the guesswork out of building a coop that's just right for your flock of chickens.
