Learn how to build a durable and the right density Kienyeji Chicken Housing with Our Kienyeji Housing Manual. Chicken housing is a prerequisite if you are planning to run a profitable poultry farming business. If you are going to commercialize your poultry farming project, you must begin by building a good quality housing that will to protect them from both the elements and the predators and even thieves.
Proper kienyeji chicken housing will contribute to happy and healthy birds which in turn lead to better yields and lower occurrence of diseases in the flock. However, building a Kienyeji chicken housing or chicken coop is not easy. There are certain specifications that you will need to follow in order to provide the right Kienyeji housing.
A good chicken coop design should include the following:-
- Be predator-proof, not just from the sides, but from above and below as well.
- Be secure from nasty rodents (yes, rats!) that will be attracted to the feed and droppings.
- Be breezy (low in air pressure coming in) enough to prevent respiratory diseases, to which chickens are especially prone, but not so drafty (having cold air moving through in a way that is unpleasant or uncomfortable) during cold season that they freeze their tushes (tooth) off. Chickens can withstand the cold so long as it's not drafty!
- Be easy to clean so bugs and bacteria don't fester (make the house rot).
- Provide "roosting poles" for your birds to sleep on (2" wide; rounded edges; allot 5-10" of space per bird side to side and 10" between poles if more than one is necessary; plus ladder-like grading so the pole furthest away is several inches higher than the closest). They like spending time in these positions.
- Encourage egg-laying with 1 nest box for every four or five chickens.
- Be roomy: at least 4 square feet per bird if birds are able to roam freely during the day, and at least 10 square feet per bird if they are permanently confined.
- Accommodate a feeder and waterer, which should hang 6-8" off the ground.
- Include a removable "droppings tray" under roosting poles for capture and easy disposal of droppings. These are rich fertilizer which you can use in your farm or sell to other farmers.
- Similar to the coop, the sides of the attached chicken run, if you have one, should be buried 12" into the soil to keep predators and rodents from digging their way in.
- Setting the house among tall trees may help prevent aerial attack of young birds by hawks.
