Tools and Supplies To Keep For Coop And Chicken Care
No matter how many or how few chickens that you have in your coop, you should have some basic tools ready for repairs. There may come a time you will have a loose hinge, door handle or wire needs to be patched. You will need a shovel and rake after a heavy rain to remove debris blocking doorways.
Here is a sample of tools and things to keep handy in your barn or coop area:
shovels and rakes
net for catching chickens
garden pump for sprays
hoes and pitchforks
hammer, nail and saws
buckets 3 and 5 gallon
6 mil painter plastic to cover windows/doors during heavy rain
wire cutters and pliers
zip ties for holding wire while securing it with stronger metal wire
heavy duty garden cart with wheels or garbage cans
For a bigger job on your coop its a good idea to have a tool belt handy, this will save steps when making repairs.
