If you have a little free spot in your backyard, a chicken coop would be an option to fill that space. Raising chickens can be quite ingenious, as you will always have fresh and healthy eggs at home and you will also be having pets around the house. After you cleaned the spot, you can build your very own chicken coop, that will protect these small animals from the bad weather. This way you can make the coop the size you want, depending on the number of chickens you want to raise and you can give the coop any aspect you want. By raising chickens at home, you can also control what they eat and this can benefit your health too.
