Ideas for a protected area around the coop - Page 2

post #11 of 12

Can you post some photos showing the area, including your current coop and run shown in the little sketch above?

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!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

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

The actual coop is not finished yet so they are temporarily living in the 8X10 covered run.  One day they will have 24/7 access to both.

 

The first 2 pictures are a repeat of the one I linked to above and another taken at the same time last week.

 

 

 

 

This one is from today.  The area painted all white is the smaller (temporary) door I’ve been using.  I think it’s around 20 feet from the chickens to the back fence.  I can use the total width of the coop and run, but need to leave about 12 feet of room in back for…  I don’t know and I don’t really care because I’m getting a version of the run I originally wanted. LOL
