We've decided to rotate the birds back into a field they were in a few years ago. Their old coop is now claimed by the goats though so new construction is a must, YAY!! Below is some info about what I'd like to have but I am very interested in getting other peoples' input as far as what kind of coop THEY would build in this space. I currently have about 12 layers but also have 8 B/B/S Wyandottes I'd like to separate for breeding in the near future. The coop needs to be tall enough for me to go into & clean(so at least 6ft). Dirt floor preferred. Main predators are: Raccoons, Coyotes & plenty of Hawks that get after the babies too. *I want to use re-purposed cedar fencing for siding & have some new metal roofing as well. This is a picture of the area where it will be built, I chose this area for it's shade but it does get plenty of sun until late afternoon. The goats will be living in the pasture around the coop, to make things easier for me and help deter predators. The outlined area is just an idea of where it'll be, could go a little more to the right(between the trees) but don't wanna go much farther to the left. I am open to ALL input, from coop & run down to watering systems!
