Hi everyone ! We're currently in the design/planning stage of renovating an old wooden granary into a chicken coop. Since I have found this sight I have been finding piles of great ideas that will make keeping chickens easier and clean up more efficient. If I have a question it is so easy to find an answer. All you have to do is type your question into the search bar at the top and you've got your answer . I tried looking for a thread about the best design ideas people have shared, but I couldn't find one. Sooo... I made one. So far my favorite finds are; Externally accessible next boxes (I have an idea how to work them in even up here with our bitterly cold winters.) Nest boxes should be lower than the roost. Poop trays filled with pdz or stall fresh under the roost ( anything to make clean up more efficient is awesome!) Using hardware cloth instead of chicken wire for added protection. And The thermo cube, thermostatically controlled outlet. It's a pretty short list so far but I'm sure there are plenty more ideas and tricks out there so, what's your favorite coop design feature?
