Homesteading Chicken Coop Basics

Homesteading chicken coop basics gives insight into chicken coops, chicken run, chicken feed, supplements, water and the benefits of a chicken dust bath.

You don’t need a fancy farm to keep chickens, and it doesn’t need to be a headache to figure out what your chickens need. Chickens are good for their eggs, meat, and as little feathered friends. Raising them keeps you from having to buy eggs, and if you really need to, you can slaughter and eat them when times are tough.

But chickens need a place to stay, they need food to eat, but they mostly just need shelter from the elements. Along with that, you need a way to keep your chickens from running around. These shelters are called chicken coops. They don’t take a lot of work once you get into the habit of taking care of them, so it saves money and you’ll never have to worry about sleeping in late.

Really, chickens are interesting and useful creatures. They might seem like something that isn’t important, or something that would be a waste of time, but they’re low on the food chain so, with a little love and careful building, they can pay you back for keeping them safe. But why make keeping them safe harder than it has to be?
