Moveable Run Help! - Page 2

post #11 of 12

Will your run be attached to your coop while your'e gone?

Is both coop large enough for them all to stay in there all day and all night?

 

I leave pop door open all day and they decide whether to go inside during inclement weather.

Most choose to seek shelter in the coop, some don't and wander in rain or hover under the small shelter space in run under the edge of coop.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

This is what I do, too. My run and coop are attached.
