Hi. I am 100% new to chickens. I'm currently researching everything. Right now I'm looking through these coop designs, and you guys' coop threads and pages etc. Some questions-- Are there benefits for coops having slanted roofs? I noticed many designs have the roof at a slanted angle. (water run off? ventilation?) Are there benefits to having the coop raised 2-3 feet off the ground? Many coop designs I see are elevated off the ground as well. What type of lumber is most common? I don't know much about lumber yet, still learning. I've heard some people say they will never use pressure treated lumber (is that the correct term?) I've also heard of lumber that retains water and will warp when dry? When building your coop.. what directions do you make certain parts of the coop face or does it matter? Do you build your coops in the shade, the full sun, or half and half? Do you build them protected by tree canopy or build them out in the open?
