You may think that building your own backyard poultry coop is a monumental task. Thinking like this is understandable, if you’ve never built anything before. Have no fears, as I’m here to offer you a way to get the job done and have fun while you complete your project in record time.
During these difficult economic times, we need to get back to basics and join forces with our friends and neighbors to help each other get through. Working together is a perfect, just like our ancestors did when they built this wonderful country.
What I’m talking about is a good old fashion backyard chicken coop raising party! First do your home work like we talked about in the previous post, Hen House Planning Tips.
After you have made sure there are not restrictions or ordinances against having chickens, decided what kind of chickens you want to have and decided on the type of hen house you want to build, here’s what you do next:
1. Buy your Chicken Coop blueprints and get all the materials you need to complete your project.
2. Send invites to all your friends and neighbors, adults and kids and ask them to bring friends. Let them know that you need their help and you are hosting a Backyard Chicken Coop Raising Party! It’s a good way to get to know your neighbors and make new friends.
3. Plan a full day of fun! Ask each family to bring a covered dish as you want to end the day with a huge bar-b-que!
4. By the end of the day, you will be exhausted, but happy as you sit back, relax with a cool drink with your friends and gaze at your completed hen house.
People really do love to help one another. Who knows, you may be starting something. Many of your friends and neighbors may decide to follow your lead and have their own Backyard Poultry Coop Raising Party! If anything, they will definitely look forward to “borrowing” some fresh eggs.
This idea should give you more confidence about your project and show you how much fun it can be!
