When’s the last time you heard of someone building a chicken coop of their own? Never is probably a very common response to that question. It’s truly a mystery as to why chicken coops haven’t been popularized. they are beneficial both to the environment and to your wallet. all you need is a bit of determination.
Chicken coops are basically miniature houses for your chickens. they protect the chickens from mother nature, as well as wild animals. they also provide a comfortable living environment for the chickens, causing them to lay eggs. if the chickens get stressed, there is a chance that they will stop laying eggs. There are two main types of chicken coops. you can buy pre-built ones from your local hardware store. Or you can do it yourself Don’t be fooled, pre-built coops are a waste of your money. they require the same amount of work to put together, and are much more expensive than the materials you will buy for the actual portable chicken coop.
Now that we are on the topic of expenses, are you worried about the initial cost of the chicken coop? you shouldn’t be Chicken coops provide you with a steady amount of eggs each morning. not only are those eggs free, they are also fresh and delicious. you can also use their waste for a valuable fertilizer for your plants and shrubs. with these two valuable things, fertilizer and eggs, the cost of your chicken coop will quickly fade into nothing. You’ll pay off the initial cost within a month or so, and after that everything is pure profit some families even find themselves with extra eggs that they don’t need. These not only make great gifts to friends and family, but you could also sell them
Earlier on I made a comment about chicken coops being beneficial to the environment. When’s the last time you put your table scraps to good use? Chicken coops recycle your leftover food scraps and turn them into eggs and fertilizer
