An A-frame chicken coop is probably the easiest to build. As the name suggests, the shape is triangular, and this type of basket is often considered to be portable runner that you can place in different areas of your backyard. One advantage I enjoy with this type of coop is the fertilization of the area I deposit them so I’m used to taking them regularly to different places. If you don’t want something mobile, you can create your Coop to stay in one place.
A-Frame chicken coop is ideal for people who want to raise a small number of chickens. It is very important to give each chicken enough room to graze. This type of shed can hold about 5 chickens. If you cannot meet the 3 square meters per Chicken rule, you should consider building a larger garden with a different design or layout.
It’s actually easier to build your A-frame chicken coop on the spot. You can save time by doing this and you have the opportunity to see how things evolve over time, especially if you want to see how Coop fits into your garden.
Examine the environment and see how much light is in your garden. You should know that chickens have sensitive sleep cycles, and ironically, the sun helps them enter a good rhythm. Raise the barn so that the chickens get plenty of sunlight.
Another great thing to keep in mind is the safety of your crew. Do you live in an area where snakes, foxes and coyotes move freely? These are the most famous predators of chickens and you have to do everything to secure them. Look for a plan that solves this problem.
