AUSTIN, Texas - Aug. 18, 2021 - PRLog -- If you want to keep your chickens healthy and happy, then you're going to want to keep them outside in a chicken coop. Whether you decide on a Roost and Root coop or not, we've included our top must-have requirements for your chicken coop.

Security:

Protecting your chicken coop from predators is the main concern of all chicken caretakers day and night. But don't worry, with a few tips it's easy to prevent breaches from unwanted predators! In the long term, it's a primary advantage to keep your lovable chickens in a safe and structurally sound coop rather than something flimsy.

Ventilation:

As we all need ventilation in our homes, it's a must to have a correct source of ventilation in your chicken's coop, as chickens are more prone to attract respiratory ailments. It is advisable to maintain an open vent every season, these vents should be located at a high point of the coop and not directly exposed to the roost area. For colder seasons, it's best to cover any large wired airways, one method we use during the cold season is our winter storm/snow panels that easily clip to any wired sections of the coop, offering both wind protection and slight transparency for the occasional sunny winter day.

Cleanliness:

We all know by nature that chickens are messy creatures. Therefore, it's important to keep an eye on the cleanliness of your chicken coop (https://roostandroot.com/blog/where-to-build-your-chicken...) regularly. We know that sounds like a lot, but a clean and comfortable coop will result in an overall more enjoyable experience for your hens and you when it comes to egg collection. Bird droppings can accumulate quickly, so a small amount of cleaning on a regular basis can go a long way.

The Right Number of Nesting Boxes:

Nest Boxes give a safe and private area for your chickens to lay their eggs. Nesting Boxes should be designed to be elevated from the coop floor, but never above the level of their roosting space.

Run Area:

The run area of your coop should be at the minimum, 4 ft2 per averaged sized bird assuming they experience a day where they are unable to get free range time. Our coops (https://roostandroot.com/product-category/coops/) for example, allow for an overhead waterer and a space considerate gravity feeder.
