I am in the process of creating a coop out of an old chain link dog pen and wanted to locate it next to the pump house. With 3-5 chickens I figued that would be a good location as the pump house would protect them on one side from weather and wind, and it's rather close to trees for shade in the afternoon and morning sun. The husband feels that is too close to the well and could contaminate the water. Has anyone dealt with a coop near a pump house? If so, what did you do to manage the poop drain off into the well? Thanks.
