Keeping chickens is easy and very rewarding. I still love going out to the chicken ark and collecting, warm, fresh eggs. In the early days, though I was bewildered. I didn’t know what I needed to get started, what information I needed or what kind of chicken house to get. There was a huge array of different types to buy, all of which cost way more than I wanted to spend, and the chicken coop plans I found were unclear, badly produced and hard to follow.
Building a Chicken Coop
What I needed when I started out was a simple kit. I wanted an easy to build set of chicken ark plans, with good instructions, so I could get a first hen house built quickly and cheaply.
Then I needed clear guidelines on how to look after chickens: what to feed them, how to keep them healthy, how to get the most eggs. And I needed an explanation of terms. Then I’d have been all set.
Now I’ve found what I’d been looking for all that time ago: a complete set of chicken coop plans – which includes a really easy to build chicken ark, a larger hen house and a beautiful chicken house my girls would just love.
The plans are beautifully illustrated and the instructions are clear and easy-to-follow.
As well as the plans, there’s also has all the information you need to get started – what to feed your chickens on, the best breeds to go for, how to keep your chickens healthy, all in one downloadable package. So it really is what I was looking for: a complete chicken–keeping kit.
Best of all it’s only $29.95. Just think of all the time, money and worry it could save you. I’d have saved a bundle if Building a Chicken Coop had been around when I started.
You can download the whole kit here.
You can look forward to fresh eggs and a rewarding hobby. My ‘girls’ are so entertaining. Each one is a different character and sometimes I stop just to listen while they quietly cluck away, or watch them scratching around while the sun glints on speckled golden feathers.
