Art of the Chicken Coop by Chris Gleason
Keeping a small flock of backyard chickens is becoming more and more popular.
In Art of the Chicken Coop there are easy to follow construction plans for seven different coops, four of them for flocks of six chickens or less. The perfect size for a backyard flock. One coop is a space saver, only using 2 ½ x 3 feet of space! Each coop includes a complete supply list and lots of pictures!
If you will be keeping over six, up to fifteen, three of the coop designs will accommodate such a flock. The author also includes instructions on how to increase the size of any of the coops in the book.
What I really liked was the use of salvaged materials. Both my coops used salvaged materials. I’m sure my new coop will be no different.
There are also 3 profiles of chicken keepers who offer some great advice and tips, a whole chapter on building coop runs, advice on everything you’ll need in your coop, a characteristic chart of popular backyard breeds (with each breed pictured), and egg recipes.
From beginner to veteran this book has great information for anyone!
