Yes, we agree, the cuteness lasts about a week. Yet, in the grand scheme of things, it all pays off.
What are some things that you consider when designing your chicken coop? You should make sure to offer enough space for your chicks? Make sure you have 1/2 square foot per bird at one day old to 1 square foot per bird from 6 to 12 weeks. Allow 1/2 square foot for broilers. For your baby chicks, be sure to provide two, one gallon water fountains and 100″ of feeder space per 100 chicks.
How’s this for your chicken coop? Are you inspired? We hope so!
It’s often easy to get caught up in the fun process of creating a fun coop, but it’s of the utmost importance that your chicks have enough room to grow and flourish.
