Did you know that poultry wire (chicken wire) is NOT best for building a chicken coop? Are you surprised. Well so are
most people when they hear this statement. Poultry wire is best to use in your garden or between cages INSIDE of a chicken
coop. See, chicken wire will keep chickens in the pens, but it will NOT keep predators out. In fact, this is how many
people lose their whole flocks to dogs, raccoons, bobcats and anything else that is hungry for a chicken dinner.
Chicken wire is good to use at the base of all INSIDE pens where you will be raising baby chicks. A baby chick can squeeze
out of very tiny holes, and poultry wire will solve this problem.
Also, poultry wire is good for separating chickens into different pens and chickens will really never or rarely try to
escape if installed properly. I find that there are more uses in my garden for chicken wire instead of the coop. Use chicken
wire ONLY in places that are away from predators INSIDE of your coop ONLY.

I find that most families that want four chickens think that's enough eggs. Well MOST people want more chickens
when they see Blue Star Ranch pens full laying hens. Year round we offer many popular breeds to choose
from for your new flock. Remember, you can never ever have too many fresh eggs! I have found that a family of 5
should have at the very LEAST 8-10 full sized chickens for enough eggs. If you have an extra dozen fresh eggs from
your coop each week, you will be looking for recipes for fresh eggs and start baking more often. It will happen!
