With that in mind, you need to consider investing on a chicken coop or most commonly known as hen houses. Chicken coops are where hens are kept to rest and lay eggs.  It is a building where nests are placed so the hen can comfortably lay eggs. Basically, there are two different chicken coop designs that can you can select from. One main reason for having such different types is because of having some controversial issues with regards to managing the basic needs of chickens.  The first type is a coop with a well ventilated area; this means that chickens must have an adequate space to move around.  The other one is a closed coop, wherein windows and doors could be shut during uncomfortable weathers.
