backyard chicken house

If you put your chicken coops in backyard, you should be careful about their predators. Chickens have many predators, so they need a strong house to protect them. First, make it something animals can not dig into. Having a dirt floor makes it easier to clean, however, rats, dogs and foxes can easily dig in and gain access to your chickens. Compared with that, a wood floor works well. Second, cover any holes with wood or hardware cloth. Snakes will quickly discover any open areas that lead into your coop. Snakes will not only eat small chicken, they also eat eggs, too. Thirdly, use solid materials to make walls. Raccons and some dogs can rip chickens wire apart, and into the coop. You also need a solid roof to keep your chickens safe.
