What they need

 

Looking after chickens takes some time and effort. You will need enough space for a chicken coop or shed and adequate exercise space depending on the breed of chicken you choose to keep.

 

Chickens should be kept outdoors in a coop or shed. You can buy chicken coops from most farm suppliers, online, or you could build your own.

 

Your coop should have:

  • at least 1,100 square centimetres floor area for each bird

  • a perch for them to stand on while they sleep

  • an exercise space, or ‘run’

  • the nesting box should be filled with wood shavings for the hens to lay eggs

 

Chicken coops should be cleaned out every week
