i want to build an elevated coop. how high up do you recomend it be?
Quote:I would build it about 30" to 36" high from the ground
Caleb....how much snow do you get there in Ill.?
That's how high I would put it.
Quote:usualy not that much at most maybe a foot
When I build mine in about 2 weeks my coop will be about 3 feet from the ground just because the box I have is about 3 feet and I want a 6 foot run hight.
Mine is about 2 1/2 feet off the ground. I was looking to have a little area under the coop that the girls could hang out at if the sun got to be too much!
I would go about 6 inches...kinda scared of heights and plus that way short folks can reach in
I put mine on a snow mobile trailer and put it on the property line it is portable so no building permit was needed and neighbors couldn't complain.
Know I am looking for a halfway decent camping trailer to gut out and put nesting boxes in.
Definitely high enough for your chickens to go under for sun protection and flying predator protection.
Quote:I didn't have much choice but my coop is about 40" off the ground a converted play house. Pictures on MY page.
Good luck can't wait to see pics
