Thanks for responding!
It's an 8'x8' building with free will mix of fancy scratch and layer crumbles
They are allowed to run anywhere they want when the door is open.
I have 5 hens and 2 or 3 roosters and 2 ducks (one rooster vanished last night and everyone else was inside, need to pair down on the roosters anyway)
No new birds.
I haven't checked for parasites but nobody is looking sickly
It's got a small door maybe 2'x2'(ish i can't remember the measurement) door that is open all day for them to enter/exit, and a large window 4'x4'(ish) that I occasionally open if it warm outside or if it doesn't seem fresh in there.
Plus the 70"X32" door for me to enter but that's only open for me to enter and exit (screen door isn't attached yet, thinking about it the screen door seems redundant given the 2x2 hole already open)
I live in central Iowa so climate is... unpredictable, last week was lows in the 20s and hi's in the upper 60s.
This winter I had on two separate occasions an opossum get in; however, it's been at least a month or two since the threats were neutralized, so I don't think they are scared because of it.
P.s. I looked at your thread a few times before building the coop, thanks for a good write up!
