    A chicken coop is a structure or enclosure where chickens or other small poultry are kept safe and secure from predators, weather, and diseases. It usually includes a space for the birds to roost or sleep and a place for them to lay eggs. Typically, it is designed to provide ventilation, warmth, and access to food and water. It can vary in size, design, and materials depending on the number and species of the chickens, location of the coop, and the owner's preferences.


  1. Chicken coop

    A chicken coop is a building where female chickens are kept. Inside hen houses are often nest boxes for egg-laying and perches on which the birds can sleep, although coops for meat birds seldom have either of these features. A coop may have an outdoor run. Both the inside and outdoor floors of a chicken coop are often strewn with a loose material such as straw or wood chips to deal with chicken droppings and to allow for easier cleanup. Most chicken coops have some means of ventilation to help air out any smells.
