Once you have a basic idea of the size and the place of the coop, you need to consider the essential elements for a perfect coop which are vital for the well-being of your chickens. Chicken coops must provide shelter and protection for your hens. The location of the hoop is very important. It is advisable that the chicken hoop is located in a place with low moisture levels. Choose the location with attention to temperature as well. Too high and too low temperatures may have a negative effect on your chickens and may lead to a decrease in the productivity. Chickens should feel relaxed, so you need to choose the place of the chicken coop away from areas of activities. Chickens need a perching area which is important because they sleep best when perched. Nesting area is one of the most important areas in the coop. This is the area where the hens will lay their eggs. Insulate your coop to prevent the chickens from heat or cold. Leave space for the food and water of the chickens and make sure it is away from their droppings to prevent contamination. Do not forget that you should have access too – to clean the coop and gather the eggs.
