The backyard chickens movement towards self-reliance and sustainability is sweeping the nation. If you have been considering joining in and raising a small flock of your own, you will need to know the basics of chicken keeping and what they need to be happy and healthy.
In my idea home, where I would obviously have a wonderful fruit and veg garden, I would obviously have chickens too....and they would live in this awesomely cool chicken coop....and be very happy chickens because of their oh-so-stylish home!
Surrounded by raised garden beds, this deluxe chicken coop has what it takes to keep chickens safe, healthy and laying fresh eggs: a minimum 4-by-8 foot screened-in run and a 4-by-4 foot critter-proof coop for up to three hens. | Photo: Matthew Benson | thisoldhouse.com
