Reinventing the Chicken Coop
Reinventing the Chicken Coop is a collaboration of 14 chicken coop designs with instructions and tools needed brought to you by Kevin McElroy and Matthew Wolpe.
Not only do they provide basic instructions for building extraordinary chicken coops and hen houses, McElroy and Wolpe provide ample information on space requirements. There is information on methods of bedding based on the individual's needs. Different types of housing systems within the coop setups are discussed, such as open housing chicken tractors, and paddock rotations to ensure fresh ground underneath. Predators and pests are discussed, as well as the importance of ventilation, climate control and insulation.
With shown difficulty levels, supplies needed, and the amount of space the chickens each coop holds, you can easily choose which coop is right for you. This is a wonderful resource to have in your poultry library!
