Build Your Own Chicken Coop
Hatching Hope Chicken Coop in Cambodia
Building a chicken coop will help decrease flock mortality by promoting biosecurity and protecting birds from potential predators. Establishing a chicken coop can also increase production by supporting improved feeding, breeding, and other flock management practices. This video provides an overview of how to construct a chicken coop for small to medium scale native chicken producers with a target flock of 100 to 150 birds per cycle. The resources used in this video are available in tropical climates like Cambodia, but the instructions can be applied using alternative materials in other areas. Please note, this model is not recommended for those who plan to raise commercial breeds of poultry.
