Hello, I want to build a new coop for my layers. I am from Ireland so we don't get any extreme weather conditions, it rarely goes below 30 degrees F and snow never stays on the ground for more than a few hours and it only snows for a day or two every year. heat is not a problem during summer! Basically the rule for space here is 1.5 square feet per bird in a house. I want some tips and advice on what to put in it. I have built coops before and I will be using timber to build it. It will hold roughly 20 birds and they will have outside access all day and locked up at night because of foxes. Should I make it so that I can walk in or is it worth the extra effort. Roughly how many nest boxes would I need (all my other pens are only for pairs or small flocks and only have one nest box so I am not sure how many are needed). Any other worthwhile additions, I have heard of poop boards but I am not completely sure what they are though.
