chicken coop for 8 hens

Chickens coops can be made of so many different materials and in various styles. The main consideration you will need to take into account is the size of your coop. How big you build it depends upon how many chickens you plan on housing. Usually, it is recommended that a hen needs four square. It is the basic and simple size standard. If you want to put a nesting box in chicken hoops, you need more space. Chickens prefer to a private place to lay their eggs. If you do not provide them a comfortable nesting box, they will lay their eggs wherever they stand. Such situation will bring troubles for you. Generally speaking, one nesting box per 2-3 hens. Then you can determine what size you need for your chickens now.
