There's a lot of questions as to what your chicken coop kit needs to have in order for it to be considered as a definitive and complete kit. But in truth, what your kit should contain is pretty much up to you.

After all, you're growing the chickens - you should know what materials and equipment you need to build your chickens a house.

I mean, otherwise, why the hell are you building a chicken house in the first place?

But of course, it's a lot easier knowing exactly what to look out for when thinking of building a chicken coop. The parameters change depending on your location and the type of chicken you happen to be growing, so you have to consider a lot of things - and I do mean a lot of things - when rooting around shops for proper materials that you can add into your chicken coop kit.

You could even ask the experts - go to your local hatcheries and try to see how they put up their own chicken coops.

Generally, though, there are just a few important things that you need to keep in mind when putting together equipment that you'll be using to build your chickens their house. And these things all relate to the various functions of what a chicken coop should ideally be.

First things first.

How will you keep your chicken coop free from chicken poop? Depending on how many birds you have, you might end up with shovelfuls of bird poop on a daily basis, so you want to make cleaning the coop easier for you.

What materials can you include in your chicken coop kit in order to address this problem?

Secondly, you need to make sure that your chickens are safe from the elements and predator attacks.

So ask yourself these questions when considering the type of material you'll be using to reinforce your coop's security:

Will my materials be able to withstand the weather of where I live?

Will my birds be exposed to foxes, hawks and other such highly dangerous predators?

Will rodents be able to get past this?

You also want to ensure that your chicken coop kits have enough material to provide your chickens with decent ventilation and lighting.

These two additional coop features will help you keep the chickens happy, and make the management of your birds and their nest a simpler endeavor.

There are plenty of other things to watch out for when assembling a kit for building your chicken coop, but these are generally the basics. Do your own research! There are other alternatives waiting for you to find them - all you need to do is start looking.
