Hi all, I've been looking through plans to get ideas on how to build our chicken coop. Lots of neat coops out there! I was wondering if there is an ideal place to put the coop, like so the North wind doesn't blow on it, etc. I was also thinking about the door. I want a coop with an attached run, and was thinking about using a doggy door for the door to the coop? Would the chickens be able to figure that out? I'd of course have the run predator proofed but that way if I'm not up at sunrise they can let themselves out.Do you guys put tarps over the runs during winter to keep snow out? oh, and do you let chickens out in the rain? lol ty!
