COOP Decor

Make your flock right at home with the perfect interior setup.

We’ve figured out what needs to go into a coop, and how to build (or buy) the right structure. But what do we put into it? In addition to the necessary architectural elements, your chicken coop will need some interior design touches. These are the pieces of chicken coop and henhouse decor that are movable, cleanable, and need to be replaced periodically. They include:

Nest boxes are essential for every coop.

• nesting boxes;

• nesting materials and bedding;

• perches for roosting;

• feed stations and supplement hoppers;

• water stations; and

• dust-bath boxes.

No matter what shape and size your chicken coop takes, it’ll need these essential components to ensure your ladies’ health and happiness. Let’s learn a bit more about each one, looking at the function it serves, why it’s important and how to blend it into your design.

Nesting Box

Hens prefer to lay their eggs in dark, out-of the- way places, and nesting boxes fill that niche perfectly. A nesting box is a private space inside the henhouse where your hens can safely deposit their eggs and where you can easily gather them. When lined with wood shavings or straw and checked once or twice a day, the eggs remain (for the most part) clean and unbroken.
