I am already buying materials for my coop/run. I have been tossing up different ideas. how should I set my coop on the ground or build it on a deck pad. mind you I live in texas and most of the year its warm to hot. so what do you all think. I will be taking precautions for predators and such. the locations of the coop will be under a big cedar tree and also half of my run will have a tin roof on it for shade the other half will be bird netting. I approximately am looking at housing 8-10 chickens. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
