Want to know how to build your own chicken coop?
You’ve come to the right place.
When it comes to a survival situation, one of the most important factors is a food supply. More importantly, you want that food supply to be sustainable and offer good nutritional value. For years people have been keeping animals as a way to have control over their own food supply and as a necessity for survival.
Many tribes still live primarily off foraged foods and the animals they keep, allowing them to live away from large groups and find safety. Keeping chickens is a brilliant way to have a consistent and sustainable food source, with many hens producing up to an egg each day. Eggs are full of great nutrients and natural fats that we need to survive. You can also obviously eat the chickens should they stop laying eggs, usually around the 2 year mark.
