My new coop is 8' x 12', open air"ish". the front is 12' wide with a 4 foot opening in the center, the rear wall is 12' wide with two foot "window" all the way across the top, both side walls are 8' wide with 24"x24" windows. my friend told me to close up part of the rear window to allow for the roost. he said the chickens wont roost in front of a window. the whole inside is still untouched, so I am taking all advice for how to set it up. I have my own ideas, but would appreciate yalls input. thank you, Chris pics to come in the daylight.
