How many chickens...
...can I safely and comfortably house in a 4'x4' coop? I just found a really cute, well constructed wooden play house at Lowes on clearance for $150. It's 4 foot square, with a peaked roof that is 6 feet at the peak. With some adaptation, I think it will make a really fine chicken coop. I want to do deep litter, for warmth in the Winter, so will have my Hubby construct a 4 to 6 inch base to set it on (it does not come with a floor) so that will increase the total height.
Also, I read somewhere on this forum, where someone used vinyl flooring, for ease of cleaning. I'm wondering how well that has held up? Is it worth the bother?
I'm so excited to be moving forward with my "Chicken project" and will post pics once I get the little house put together. Thanks in advance for any feedback! Kathy
