Chicken keeping and coop design tip sheet

Tips for backyard chickens and coopsSometimes you just want the basics, some notes that can help you get from dreaming to doing. I put together this one-page handout for a chicken keeping presentation I gave last year, and I wanted to share it here as well.

It covers many of the most common questions about chickens and coop design like:

  • How much space do hens need?
  • How much food do chickens eat?
  • How loud are backyard hens?
  • How often do you have to change your chickens’ water?
  • How wide does the chickens’ door need to be?

But mainly it gives you a bunch of little tips and reminders to help you get started with backyard chickens and with designing and building your own chicken coop. It’s perfect as a checklist to make sure you’re not forgetting anything important.

So if you’re keeping chickens for the first time, getting ready to build your own chicken coop, giving a presentation on chickens, hosting a coop tour, or trying to educate your neighbors about chickens — download our free sheet of chicken tips (8.5 x 11″, PDF), print it out, refer to it, and share it with others!
