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."

If I knew where they lived, I'd use this:

You can fall in love with a woman.

You can fall in love with a horse, a dog or a cat.

 

Please, don't fall in love with your food.
