When considering raising poultry, such as chickens, you have to plan their housing very well. Remember that raising poultry is not as easy as you think. Chickens have a tendency to get sick more often than pigs and cows do. They are sensitive to weather, and die off easily when left uncared for. If you want to raise healthy poultry, you’ll have to take special care in what type of house you build, as well as its location.
There are different types of chicken housing, or chicken coops. Some of the suggestions below may or may not be applicable to your situation, so it would be best to use common sense as well.
One thing we want to emphasize is that you do not need a lot of space to raise chickens. That’s a misconception many people have. What is important is that your chicks have enough room to roam. We recommend providing each chicken a space that is 15 square foot at minimum. So, if you’re planning on raising six chickens, you will need around 90 square foot of land, which is not really a lot when you think about it. However, if your chickens have more room, the better! A lot of homesteaders recommend at least 25 square foot per chicken.
