Hello all! I'm looking for some coop-building guidance... My father is a carpenter and has offered some misc. materials for our coop...but I have no idea what to ask for ! We are starting with approx. 15 chickens (I ordered 13 though have heard they generally ship extras??) Initially, I had plans of building a basic A-frame...but have since found out we need to go a bit more incognito! I'm thinking about something that looks like a garden shed from the front and I'm going to put the run out the back (or side where it can't be easily seen from the road.) 8x8?? Here are some specific questions: -If we do not use flooring (just hardware cloth to keep out predators) and use the deep-litter method...could the chickens end up with frostbite? (In Massachusetts) Would it be better to just invest in flooring? -How many nest boxes per chicken? and how high should they be? -Can we use metal roofing? and if we do, should we put wood underneath to keep the chill out? -How big should the outside run area be? -Are there any specific does or don'ts that you'd recommend? -Anything you wish you'd done differently with your coop? I'm sorry for the 20 questions and I know there are always newbie questions like this ...but I really appreciate any help or suggestions!
