Housing chickens can feel like a huge responsibility, and choosing their outdoor house may seem a bit overwhelming. While there are many options available when it comes to outdoor chicken coops, choosing the best one requires some thought and consideration surrounding several factors. Think about the ease of assembly, how simple and accessible the coop will be to clean, and most importantly how predator proof the structure is. You’ll also want to consider extraneous features such as removable roosts, removable floor cleaning trays, internal locks, and sliding windows. Of course, ensure that your choice matches the desired size as well as the size of your yard.
