I have never in my life built anything for chickens so I'm going to fumble through this starting this week. Goals: -light and easy to move around the yard -plenty of room for 2-3 hens -safe for my hens -lowest maintenance possible. Ideas: -PVC framing using zip ties to attach the hardware cloth -wire bottom to maximize fertilizing and minimize the wrong kind of critter getting in. -using vents(like for your home) on the sides that are easy to open/close to encourage air flow or keep it warm in the winter. -2 nesting boxes. - large enough coop to have food/water - hinging the whole top of the coop for easy access. How does this sound so far? I know it isn't very detailed yet...I'm afraid I'll learn the best way of doing it by starting and then adjusting as needed.
