The statistics about food consumption in the USA shows that its citizens consume 8 billion chickens a year and around 250 eggs per capita. In all chicken farms there approximately 280 million laying hens producing 50 billion eggs each year.
Besides the ordinary chicken farms there are many hobby farmers that enjoy making interesting environments for their chicken by building chicken coops. If you are one who is interested in building the coop, here is what should be known:
- Find out if your city allows backyard hens concerning the rules and regulations for your area.
- Select the proper living environment for your flock.
When the proper coop for hens is chosen, you must find out the answers for the next questions:
- How many hens do you plan to keep?
- What type of chickens do you plan to keep?
- How much space do your hens need?
- How do you protect hens from predators?
The ideas for building accommodation for chickens are really interesting and we offer you an idea that husband Colleen Thermos did to make his wife happy. He built a small town along with hotels, cafes, and even a prison for criminals.
He managed to plan a place for a flock of chickens that his wife owns and she always wanted to accommodate them.
The builder thought of all the details and aesthetically adjusted all the structures.
Interesting Details are Parts of the Coop Town
“Beauty salon” even has detailed price list out front and white curtains at the windows.
Going further you’ll meet the watering station called the Rooster Ridge, which has a wooden tank with a pipe. In front of the Ivery Stables is placed a carving of a haystack. Even there are no horses, the builder included it here.
The most beautiful part of this small town is the beach which includes a hotel, a café, and a mercantile. Beautiful curtains and beautiful tapestries tied to the sides of each window can be seen here.
The blacksmith’s corner with several workbenches on which all kinds of metalworking accessories are located is a detail that deserves extraordinary attention.
What really surprises anyone who sees pictures of this small town is the horrible prison where a photo of a chicken behind bars can be seen.
Unfortunately, there is no possible building plan for this project, which must have cost a great deal of time and money, but here you can find another building plan, which can inspire you.
