Hi all. I am new to the world of chickens. I spent about a year researching and making sure I knew what I was going to be getting into. I have two boys (10 & 12) who will be helping me, but as you know they have other things on their agendas during the weekend when it comes to chores. Anyways, I thought I would add some photo's of my coop and take some feedback or comments. I spoke with several folks at the local feed store and friends who raise chickens who have told me everything looks good for when the chicks are ready to go in.
I did replace the front door of the coop. I used pine shavings inside. The inside is not done yet as I will add perches, feeding items and other stuff.
Inside of the coop only had a single perch going lengthwise, is that enough? Should I add one higher or lower? Also, the floor of the coop is a metal wire, should I replace with plywood?
Thanks for all your input.
