Chicken Coop Idea Help

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I bought a chicken coop and before I build it. I have an idea and didn't know if anyone else did this. My backyard gets very wet at times and I thought putting the chicken coop on cinder blocks. But I would make the cinder blocks level with the ground.I'm not sure if it's a good idea or not. So your opinion is greatly appreciated

I would dig in at least have the block. I think I would have issues with the chickens digging under them or the frost making them tip if I did not.

I worry about frost damage depending on your climate, unlevel blocks, water collecting the the spaces, freezing and cracking? What about doing a really deep layer of sand? Or even washed gravel, then sand on top?

Never thought the frost. Thank you for your help.
