In the Brooder
- Apr 17, 2013
I had just posted last night about questions regarding building a coop in my shop. Then I saw a picture this morning and love the idea of the interior that TwoSpringHens built (https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/768401/new-to-back-yard-chickens). Just frame it in and use chicken wire for two of the walls. Is that advisable? I work occasionally in the shop and run a saw or drill, or even spray paint now and then. My assumption is that if the hens don't like what I'm doing in there, they will go outside to their run. Is that assumption correct? Could it affect their egg producing? Would it make a difference if there were 4 solid walls instead of just two? Should I be worried about full exposure to the shop on two sides? It is not heated (or cooled) inside the shop, but I didn't plan on putting any insulation in the walls, either. Thank you in advance for your advice!
