What’s The Best Chicken Coop & Run?
Choosing which is the best chicken run with coop depends on how many chickens you are keeping, the size of your backyard and how often you can let them out to forage free range.
Look for a coop that has ample nesting box space that is appropriate for the number of chickens you wish to keep.
Chickens are social birds and are quite happy to nestle in with each other.
For example, if you plan on housing four or five hens a good sized nesting box should measure around 300mm square.
Coops with nesting boxes off the ground offer real benefits for your chickens and for you.
Elevated coops provide better ventilation, reduce dampness form the ground and make it easier for you to collect eggs and clean the coop.
