Hi! I'm going to be getting my first chickens in a month or so and need help figuring out a few things to get my large garden shed turned into a coop.
I was planning on putting the roosts on the back wall and the shelves for the nests on the right wall
I already have a door. The shed was used as a dog house/yard when my mother was on vacation.
The chickens are going to be 100% free range from morning until dusk. Here are my questions:
What should I do for ventilation?
I was planning on putting 2 shelves up for the nests. I know I need to put some wood borders on the outside of the shelves to keep the straw and eggs in, but should I section the shelves off also to make nest boxes?
Should I finish covering the interior beams, or is it fine how it is now?
Any other input is greatly appreciated. Thank you!
