We are thinking of getting chickens and want to really plan our coop well. We are thinking of getting about 20 hens. Here is the space we are thinking of using: We would clear out the stuff that is there at the moment. Sorry about the glare. We are planning on extending the fence from the post of that overhang to the far wall, and all that area will be our coop and run. So what are some of the essentials for a coop? I know we want to be able to access the coop without having to walk through the run. We want to be able to collect eggs from outside. We want to have an area to separate broody hens, new chickens, sick hens..etc. We are thinking of making the coop only chicken size not being like a walk-in one for people. We are also thinking of making the roost so that the floor under it was actually a tray that we can pull out from the outside for easy cleanup. Any ideas on how to plan this coop? We have some but don't know exactly what we want yet.
