Building a chicken coop is a bit more complex than you probably assume. It isn’t just about propping together a two by four. There are several things to consider, like a shady location for example, so the chickens survive the hot summer months. Some chickens, as it turns out, are extremely lucky in that sense. That is because they have loving owners who treat them as VIP (Very Important Poultry) by building the most extravagant and creative coops for them. Trust us, these chicken owners had it all figured out. Check out these amazing chicken residencies, which even made us a little jealous...
It’s very important that the inside of a coop has enough light to keep the chickens content through autumn and winter. Another important trick to know if you plan on becoming a chicken owner is to install light bulbs that cast a warm glow like the sun in the coop. Bluish light won’t trigger your hens to lay eggs.
Also, when building your magnificent coop, don’t forget to install vents to keep the air circulating but not causing a draft.
