    you will need to clean your chicken coop atleast twice a year.Make sure your chickens have available nesting boxes to.
    I recomend using hanging feeders and if you have a lot of chickens you should get a big waterer.To keep your chickens
    healthy you should check your chickens for mites often.
    Every once and a while let your chickens out of the coop to get some fresh air and grass.You need at least 2 square feet
    per chicken.Keep a clean coop so that poop balls don't forming on your chickens toes.
