    We're building a coop in Brooklyn (rats!, raccoons, cats) and considering putting it on a part of the yard that has brick-shaped paving stones so that any rats would not be able to burrow underneath. Is this a bad idea? Would it be too moist? Our thought is a tractor-type coop that we could move, clean underneath, and put back. Do they need to be on dirt?

    no it doesnt matter what you put it on and if anything putting it on concreet or any solid ground like that makes it easier to clean out [​IMG]
