Raising chickens has been a common practice at farms and among rural families, but nowadays chickens are finding new owners in the suburbs.
Many people are now looking at adding small chicken flocks of their own in their backyards. There are many reasons why people choose chickens, including the ease of raising them and the small amount of space generally needed to provide them with a home. Plus, raising chickens offers owners an easy way to get their own farm-fresh eggs from their own coops.
It’s the latest extension of the urban and suburban farming movement, which has taken place all across the U.S. Chicken farming in more urban areas really started to gain steam about a decade ago in Seattle, Washington and Portland, Oregon, says The Worldwatch Institute. People in those two cities took ideas from the rise of the “eglu” chicken house in London, and from there, the movement began. Now, cities across the country have voted to allow residents to raise their own chickens in small numbers at their homes.
With so many people now looking to add chickens of their own, we’ve decided to help make it easier with our pre-fabricated chicken coops. Available in several different styles and colors, our coops can house just a few chickens or up to 20 chickens. With fully enclosed options and designs that provide a run area for those with grass and lawn for chickens to feed, you can choose the option that will work best for your home and available space.
Pricing for chicken coops starts at just $80 per month, and with free delivery available within 100 miles of our Oneonta facility, you can easily get the structure you need to make chicken raising a reality at your home with Amish Barn Company.
