With keeping chickens comes the responsibility of providing them adequate housing. This article covers important considerations for buying or building the perfect chicken house for your poultry.
A chicken tractor (or arc) is a cage that can be moved over a paddock or garden beds. It is half-way between a fixed chicken coop and permanent free-ranging.
Chickens are a great addition to the family and will contribute in many ways, such as producing eggs, fertilising your garden and devouring food scraps.
Hearing the clucks and murmurs of a contented hen happily scratching for grubs and insects in the leaf litter under a tree or hedgerow can be one of the more satisfying moments of small farm living.
On some free range egg and broiler (meat bird) farms the outdoor range is a fenced open field with no overhead cover for birds. This does not allow the birds the opportunity to seek shade/shelter while in the range.
