I will be getting my first chicks (bantam Easter eggers hens ,molted cochin hens, and an assortment of silkies) in April ♡! Luckily we have 2 acres of field land (used to be a corn field I believe) and have picked out a spot for me and hubby to build a nice big coop and run. There this car port/corn shed structure we are cleaning out. The roofs are good on both sides but the middle will have to be replaced and the posts are large and cemented into the ground. In the end we will have a run that 8ft 8inches wide, 44ft 6inches long, and 6ft 8inches high. The coop will be 8ft 8inches wide, 6ft long, 3ft off the ground, and 3fthigh. I want to have about 5 - 6 nest boxes and one whole wall hinges for easy cleaning and access to any eggs. It will have a nicetin roof over the whole thing and hardware cloth fencing (we have dogs, cats, and snakes out here), a 6inch skirt and cinderblocks on top. Inside will have two vegetable boxes and a dust box. For 9-15 chickens. Gran wants it to be turquoise so we be prime, sealing and painting the coop turquoise with white accents. And I'm thinking of using sand for the ground of the run. I live in the deep south (Homerville georgia), is their any concerns I need to be aware of do to the heat? Am I missing anything? I attached a rough sketch I have in mind...its not the best sorry I'm no artist.
