I am planning on building my coop in my garage, with a doggie door going to the run out side. I am planning on the foot print of the coop being about 4x4 or 5x4 Originally I was planning on making a little box style coop raised off the ground about 6 inch. (I' m planning on having a few inches of pine bedding in the coop) My boyfriend thinks we should build the coop right on the cement flooring in the garage, with no wood under it. My concern is, will the cement be hard to clean, and will the cement get to cold in the winder time. (I live in michigan) The chickens will not be straight on the cement floor they will be on a few inches of pine shavings, but I still feel like it would be colder that way. What are your thoughts, which is better? I think the main reason my boyfriend wants it to just be straight on the cement is, that it would be a lot easier to make. Laziness.
