Less cash & less maintenance
What other creature can you home in your backyard which provides you with eggs, amusement and hours of entertainment?
At this time you are obviously considering building a hen house and are only looking for a little more push or chance those last minute pointers. I congratulate you for choosing to construct one as apposed to purchase one. Most individuals think buying one is the faster, simpler choice, when actually it is really not. The pre-made built ones need to be put together, which in itself is obviously a job, as most of us know, only reading the instructions can cause high blood pressure. And of course with a house build coop you have more options, more liberty and the capacity to design it around your requirements.

Build it bigger than you think you’re going to want.
Make sure it gets plenty of sunlight light
Create a secure reliable run for your pets

Make the food / watering place with easy access for you along with the chickens
Bear in mind, with a little additional effort in the beginning stages of building your hen house you may make your backyard coop a simpler to maintain, low stress and much more peaceful atmosphere for your pet poultry. Also know that the more relaxing and more serene surroundings you construct for the cows, the fitter the birds, and healthy birds means fitter, bigger egg yield.
