We've found a great coop and are excited for our new chicken adventure! I'm wondering though if anyone has advice on the best placement of a coop. We have a side yard about 7' wide and 24' long where we are planning the dedicated chicken area. However, a neighbor mentioned putting the coop as far away from the house as possible as it may attract rats, mice and other vermin. Does anyone have advice or experience with keeping a coop so close to your home? Thanks in advance!
