2. DIY Trampoline frame Chicken Coop
Ingenius! Grab and old trampoline and you can build a really cool coop around it.
A key consideration of the chicken Real Estate is space. Chickens love and need enough space to move around, spread their wings and search for their own complementary source of food by picking on stuff on the ground, worms insects etc. The more important reason to try as much as possible to provide a good degree of free space is because it reduces the incidence of them falling sick and picking their feathers.
It’s necessary to keep the coops fenced to protect the chicken and chicks from local and foreign predators, dogs, cats, rodents and so on. Make sure to get approval from the kids before you attempt this, though ;).
