How far away from your house is your coop? The shed that I am planning on converting to a coop is very close to my house; is this a problem? I have looked for ordinances pertaining to this in my town and there are none. I plan on keeping my coop very clean, but even with a weekly cleaning...is it still going to smell? Will the fenced in run smell? At the moment, it's being planned for 25 chickens. I can move it, but then again...I still have to get to it in the winter. Plus I love the idea of being able to watch them out my back windows.
