Dog kennel

Post by Harvey_Birdman on Fri Jan 03, 2014 12:17 am

I was just wondering if anyone had tried raising chickens in a dog kennel? Did you have trouble with them getting out? Did you have any issues that I may not have thought about? Our new place is next to the road, and I want to make sure they won't be able to get out and get ran over.

God bless, Chad

We have kept hens in a dog kennel as the pen with a small coop inside of that. The kennel will usually keep them in, but I would clip the feathers of one wing just to be on the safe side.

You will definitely need some good shelter inside and something that can be shut up at night is recommended. The chickens may not be able to get out, but a raccoon can get in.

If you are just getting started with chickens Harvey, you should really do some reading on my website. I have a lot of information collected there. Plus some coop plans for sale. http://www.uBuilderPlans.com

Thanks Farmfresh, I will give that a read sometime. I have raised chickens in the past, but we just moved, and I am starting over with a lot of my setup. Plus I live in town now and can't have free range chickens like I would like to have.

My site is really aimed at the more urban or suburban setting. You really do need to do things different when living in close quarters with other people and especially their dogs. In town the neighbor's dog is your most likely predator.
