. Us either on the nesting boxes. We are going to put our boxes on the back side (opposite the patio). We wanted a bit more time so we could strategize the design for them. We built our coop without plans. We were just winging it off of a few nice looking ones I'd seen on byc and from a few books. We wanted to make sure to appropriately support them, and we just wanted to get the main coop done so the girls had somewhere to sleep that wasn't my daughter's tub.
. We will likely also cut another window hole on the front to help get airflow in the summer, and we'll put plexi glass in in the winter. I was really worried about designing something that our neighbors would be looking at from their deck. Thankfully they like it!!
