I use a head light at night to handle most birds....also make sure you don't light an avenue of escape for them.

They are pretty helpless when they can't see.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I hold the ends of a towel, one in each hand, flip the towel over their head and place my hands on the body over the wings.
