    My chicken coop and run is 10 x 6 with the coop being 4 x 6. First question: With a space of this size, what is adequate ventilation? I was planning on putting a roof vent in. Do I need venilation on the sides as well and where do I put them, close to the floor or at the top? Second question: Should the nesting boxes be placed on the floor or secured a distance above the floor? Thanks for any advice :)
