Keeping chickens is a rewarding experience from fresh eggs every morning to fun, charismatic companionship. A flock of chickens also helps your household become more sustainable by providing you with your own food source, free pest control and garden fertilizer.
But to make sure your chickens stay in good health and have a happy life, you need a coop and run that provides warmth, shelter and protection from predators. There is a huge range of stylish and functional chicken coop kits at Foter Magazine.
