Chicken coops are a great way to supplement your home grown products. Any small household can raise laying hens to get chicken eggs for eating. In South Africa, with our great climate, it is a shame that more people do not keep a few chickens and hens for eggs at home. 5 hens will give you at least 20 eggs a week - ample for a family. They are easy to keep and pretty much look after themselves. It is also a great way to help the planet. A small chicken coop - with the right chicken equipment is very easy to maintain. A few drinkers and tube feeders and the feeding and watering of the poultry becomes a breeze. To keep 5 hens you will only need a chicken coop about 2m square. If it is properly designed and placed in the right location you will have eggs through out the year. You have control of what you feed your chickens and you can allow them free range - which means that the eggs can be organic eggs and free range eggs. Imagine collecting your own fresh eggs from your home chicken-coop for breakfast every morning! Email us the size you would like and where you are and we will give you a quote. Common sizes wil give you this many eggs. 2m x 2m - up to 8 hens, 3m x 3m up to 25 hens. Of course if you wnat more chickens and laying hens you could go for a small production unit - this way you will be able to sell eggs to your neighbours and family - a 3m x 6m poultry production unit will allow you to fit 150 hens - which will yield about 600 egss a week! They will each need only 150 grams of food per day.
