Recently some friends of mine decided to start raising their own chickens. Having heard the horror stories about how mishandled chickens are in commercial battery cages and how unhealthy commercially processed eggs are for us, who could blame them! So I decided to help do some research for them on how to build a chicken coop and raise chickens.
It was an interesting challenge as I have absolutely no experience with chickens, or chicken coops. I did a lot of searching online and was genuinely surprised at how much information there is about raising chickens! Apparently, my friends were not alone in their desire to raise healthy chickens and have healthy eggs!
There were plenty of books and sites about raising chickens and then there were plenty of books and sites on building a chicken coop, but I couldn’t find very many that gave me the whole story from start to finish. I wanted a full-service site if you will. One that was able to tell me everything we needed to know, from how much land would be required, to detailed instructions on how to build a chicken coop, to step by step instructions on how to raise healthy happy chickens.
As my friends were as clueless as I was about the whole topic, it was imperative that I find a site that answered every question we could come up with. After hours and hours of research, I found it!
The best site on the web, if you have any interest at all in raising chickens or building a chicken coop is by far petnailexpert.com.
Not only does it give you step by step instructions covering everything from choosing the best piece of land, area of your backyard, to what kind of chickens you should raise based on your climate, to very easy instructions on how to build many different types of chicken coops, but it also has a help center and a library of videos to walk you through it all!
This site was even featured on the Discovery Channel, HGTV, USA Today and DIY network. I can certainly see why it has gotten so much attention! They even tell you exactly what tools will be required and how to use them!
I told my friends about ChickenDIYGuides.com, and within a few hours, they were calling me all excited to get started! In just days we all became experts on raising chickens! Pretty amazing as we were all clueless to begin with!
I am so excited and have told everyone I know about our new venture. I already have a few other people asking me for the site address and wanting me to help them get started! Check out petnailexpert.com, and you will be enjoying the benefits of fresh eggs in no time!
