Set up suitable housing.

Having the right housing is not only better for the chickens but also better for you, so be sure to plan your chicken housing, and get it set up before you buy the birds. Plan the size of the housing, how you’ll access it to care for the birds and collect eggs, how it will fit into your yard, and how it will be lighted.

Make sure the housing accommodates your needs as well as the chickens’. The housing doesn’t have to be elaborate, but it needs to be clean and functional.
