This site is provided ‘As is’ and with the best intentions of the author. Please use your own due dilligence (and common sense) when researching chicken care and ideas for building chicken coops (for your sake and theirs). You may legally need permission to keep chickens in your area. If you are building your own coop, bear in mind that DIY and the use of tools can easily (and quite often do) result in a visit to a hospital. Please be careful.
