Hi again. Because of restricted space about the only place for us to build a chicken coup and run would be... 1. on the south side of our house (ie all day full sun). and 2. It would only be about 7 ft. away from the side of the house and only about approx 15 ft. FROM THE FRONT DOOR. Is that just not a good idea? One of my main concerns is the smell,(looking into a oder free coop design), and also the fact that chickens attract mice, rats and predators. We have a lot of fox, badgers and ferrels. I really don't want to attrack mice or rats to my front door. I just watched a YT video I think from King Roost. They said (at least in their area), that the coop should be at least 25 ft. away from the house and 30 ft. away from your neighbor's house. I think the neighbor's house wouldn't be a problem. The coop would be right against 2 neighbors' fences but far enough away from their houses. So what do you think? Forget the location? It really is about our only possible place to put it...ie south side, full sun and just a few ft. from the house and the front door. We were considering only getting a few chickens, max 4. Is it worth it? Thanks!
