Hey Y'all, I'm tweeking my coop design as hubby builds instead of being sensible and planning things correctly from the start & I need some experienced persons to advise. I wanted to put my feeder & waterer under the coop to cut down on mess, dampness & poo inside the coop, but the coop ended up being only 15" off the ground and that looks kind of low. However, the area under the nesting boxes is 26" tall by 18" deep by 3' long and I could certainly put the feeder and waterer there. My question is, "Would the hens be comfortable going under the low coop to get to the feeding area?" And how high off the ground should the nipples for the waterer and the trough for the feeder be located? I currently have one Speckled Sussex and one White Crested Polish, both are 10 weeks. I will be getting 2 EEs and 2 BOs late next February. The info I've seen says 'back height', but I'm not getting any accurate measurements off my hens, they keep schunching down when I measure, so I'm not sure how tall 'back height' is Thanx!
