Hello! I am trying to figure out how to setup the interior of the coop to keep myself and my soon to be 10 chickens happy. I could use some advice as I'm about ready to pull out my hair trying to figure out how to arrange everything. For starts my coop is a 8 x 12 shed with a 4 1/2 foot double door opening in the front which is the 12ft wall. My questions: 1. Is it all right if the roosts are above the wall with the chicken door? I read once that the roost should be on the opposite side of the chicken door so they won't hurt themselves when they fly down and to run out the door. Would this really be a problem? They will have at least 5 ft to fly down and if I don't put up a storage room they will have 9 ft. Which leads me to my next question..... 2. Is a storage room a must have? I'm debating on adding a 'storage room' my husband is not thrilled at the idea of any more building so I'm having trouble trying to decide if it's necessary? I was thinking of partitioning off the left hand side to do a 4ft x 8ft storage room but if I don't have to I guess that would be better. I was thinking about just putting my nesting boxes up high enough where i could fit my storage bins under them and have enough of a overhang so the storage wouldn't get pooped on. Any thoughts?? 3. I would like to someday have a broody hen raise some chicks ( I would get fertilized eggs, no rooster). Should this be a concern on how high I put the nesting boxes? Is it possible to pick up and move a broody hen to put her on the ground if the nesting boxes are a few feet high? Thank you so much for any advice, I so appreciate it!!
