I recently moved my coupe from the field to behind my home. This way I can run a light to the coop. It's probably about 10 feet away from my well. It is a drilled well about 220 feet down. I have 8 chicken and only plan on keeping them there from now (November) until (March). At which time I will move them back to the field. In about a month and a half the ground will be nearly frozen and most likely it will have snow on it so I don't anticipate much seepage.

So given the description above would any of your chicken owners be concerned with water issues.

But it will seep during thaw....best to check your local codes.

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."
