Chicken coop designing...what is your dream coop
We are in the process of making a new coop. Part of it will be on an old foundation and the rest will be a covered run. Size if of no concern....the slab foundation that is already present is 15f wide by 50 foot long. It used to be a calf pen on an old dairy.
I told my DH that I want the coop to be functional and easy to use. We will have about 30 hens. I figure a dozen nest boxes...do you think that will be enough? I want the food containers to be inside with nest boxes assessible from the inside
Give me some of your best ideas. I am too old to make too many mistakes that we will have to correct.
