Hello all! I had to get rid of my whole flock of chickens due to an unusually bad infestation of mites about a year ago. I would like to some day begin again as I love keeping chickens so much, but want to ensure that I don't repeat history. I've heard that wood gives the little boogers a hiding place and is harder to clean. If I'm wanting to build from scratch a city coop for 8 hens and avoid the nasty beasties, what suggestions do you experienced chicken keepers have for me? (I do realize that there are other elements involved in a healthy flock, namely, buying only non-infested hens to begin with, quarantining them when I do buy them, etc) Thank you!
