Chickens need housing so that they have somewhere to sleep at night and somewhere to shelter from the sun and the rain. Depending upon how many chickens you are looking to keep, you will need to ensure that you have a suitably sized chicken coop for them.

It is common to adapt existing structures such as sheds and outbuildings for your chicken coop.  More extravagant designs have included conversions of old vans, caravans and playhouses. All of these options would be suitable for providing your chickens accommodation to roost and lay eggs. The chicken coop also  provides protection from predators such as foxes and birds of prey.
