Grass Valley, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2009 — Why would anyone want a back yard chicken coop? Because raising chickens and enjoying fresh eggs is one thing people can do to off set rising food bills. Its fun, kids love it, and the eggs are healthy and delicious tasting from happy chickens. Producing food locally saves fossil fuels and it doesn’t get much more local than the back yard. Even the garden benefits from all the free fertilizer which serves to restore the soil. Only two or three fun and entertaining pet chickens will provide one to two dozen eggs per week.
For people tentatively taking their first step into the field of chickens, the back yard chicken coop offered by Creative Coops is an easy way to start small with only two to three chickens in a single hen house. But unlike any other coop on the market, all the parts are modular, so along with some new parts, customers can later transform what they have into a larger hen house to accommodate more chickens. One hen house can expand from 2′ x 2′ to 2′ x 4′ or as much as 4′ by 4′. “It’s like LEGO® meets chicken coops” says owner Mark Hall. Wheels can even be added allowing any hen house and pen to be easily moved around a yard. Everything is ordered over the internet and shipped to the customer’s front door.
