this is our barn that we are converting one section into our coop. It will be 10x12'... as you can see there is 2 existing walls & we can't decide whether we should plywood up and totally enclose the other 2 walls or if just wire would be fine on them. we live on 4 acres that is totally fenced in so they will free range all day and we will only put them in at night to their coop. We plan on getting 30 baby chicks. as you can see there is already an existing shelf that we r planning on using for their nesting box, by adding another board to the top of the shelf & a 1x4 across the bottom row so it's slightly more enclosed and the eggs won't fall out. We were planning on adding another whole nesting box on the other wall and adding a roosting pole along the outer edge of that top board, but recently seen that some of yall have 'poop trays'... we r going to build a 'ladder' up to both boxes out of fern strips. So we are not sure where they are actually likey to sleep, the ladder, on top of the nesting boxes, or on the roost pole. And where we should put the poop tray and if that many nesting boxes are necessary for 30 chickens. thanks for all ur input in advance!!!
