A chicken coop also known as a chicken ark is a building or structure where someone keeps chickens. The interior of a coop (or ark) usually has nest boxes for the egg laying. These chicken arks will also have perches, which are what the birds use to sleep on. Keep in mind that not all coops and arks have these features.
There can also be an attached chicken run that leads into the actual coop or ark. Most of these chicken coops and arks have straw or wood chips on the floor for easier cleanup and maintenance of the facility. One important feature is some form of ventilation, which can help air out the coops or arks from any odors.
These chicken coops and arks are becoming more and more popular. With that popularity a lot of people are looking for help in how to build a chicken house or where to buy the best coop or ark.
