I am thinking about converting my daughters old playhouse into a coop. I am a rookie and would appreciate your thoughts and input. My thought is to remove the slide and use the area below the house as the run. I would build the nesting boxes below the house on the left side wall where the slide is. I am thinking about extending the run out to the fence on the right side.
I am also considering cutting a hole in the floor of the house and putting a ramp to allow the chickens access to the house, too. My thought is the chickens would have a safe upstairs area to roost and the nesting area below. Would that work? Many thanks for any thoughts and suggestions.
