Do chickens need sun?

I am thinking about getting chickens and i found the perfect spot in my backyard for a coop, and a chicken run, but it’s a little shady! Trees hang over it and some sunlight peaks through trees. DO chickens need the sun to get essential vitamins like we get vitamin D from the sun? So in this case would I be alright to place the coop there or would i need to find a new spot?

Hey Margaret,

Yeah, chickens need sunlight to gain Vitamin D from it, but be careful not to have the chickens in direct sunlight, otherwise it may do them more harm than good. Building the right style of chicken coop is the key, if you ask me :-)

To build a chicken coop which attracts just the right amount of sunlight, you can find a free blueprint over at http://www.BuildAChickenCoops.com .

This shows you everything you need and the exact steps you need to take to build a chicken coop for your hens and roosters.

I hope I’ve helped :-)

What is the best treatment for mites/lice on chickens?

I just found out that my little flock of Silkies has mites/lice. They are little yellow crawling bugs, and two of my hens are getting pretty ill from it. They have had this last fall and I sprayed them with mite killer and gave them bathes, and cleaned the coop and sprayed that down too. Now they are back.

What is the best brand/way/technique to get rid of these things?

Could they be getting them from the mice? Or the crows?

How do I get rid of the mice in my coop, without hurting the chickens or my my barn cat, and using NO poison or sticky traps.

pyrithrin based powders and sprays are the best as they are non toxic.use the powders in the coop and nests.you can dust the nests and coop every month as a deterrent spray your silkies and with dusting the nests and coop should keep them free of mites and lice.what you described sounds like lice.they are little crab like creatures.they can be spread by mice and wild birds alike.put some predatory bird cut outs on your barn to keep the crows away or if you find a dead crow hang it near your coop.i know this sounds like an old wives tail but it works.with the mice you need to be vigilant with flushing their holes with water.move feed bins and flood their nests.make it impossible for them to settle anywhere.keep food and water out of their reach.short of this you need poisons and traps.good luck

chicken coop windows

Raccons are always in my chicken coop. It lasted two chicks. Any help on predator prrof my coop?

Coop is about 2 feet from the ground. Chicken wire is everywhere! Up, down, sideways. They have a big box to go in the night or day, that has a caged windows, shingle roof, fans. The Coop is about 10 feet long and 6 meters wide and 6 feet high. We made sure there were no holes anywhere woke this morning with a 10 "hole in the side with 2 chicken torn away. No blood, feathers or anything? You think it would have been blood I? I never ever did anything animals where I live. No deer, raccons, opossums, squirrels barely. You must only come if I do not look. The chicks are 6-8 weeks old and we now have 4 outside and 1 inside pocket with a baby turkey. They were still too small to submit to the outside be. The others were put out to buy almost a week. I live in western pa, if that helps. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

Raccoons are actually very intelligent, strong and very clever, especially when trying to find ways to get food comes from. They only come out at night and if you ever see one in the day, stay away from him as it is probably rabid. By the way, I live in Western PA and I think a part of the problem is the population explosion of raccoons here in the past Years. My father, with a certain weariness, a very large raccoon led to a few hundred dollars worth of grub damage to his lawn in search of larvae in the ground, a wire trap left in the night with some food in it and the damn thing actually had the case on, picked up the food falling from the trap, ate and left … that's what I mean when I say they are smart and strong. So you can see what you have to do here lol. I agree with anyone who has any kind of repellent that you probably at Lowe's or Home Depot can be found said. And if all else fails and you have a strong stomach lol, you can try to catch them at night with a Trap and let them go somewhere else either (which I have to be careful as it does is illegal to do that in many places) or like my father did this and take it into the woods and shoot them. He did it, a hook and shot him but never caught the Great, all that has caused the damage.
