So this will be my first coop and I'm not exactly sure what I'm doing. I'm not much of a builder but my friend is so she'll be helping me, but I still need advice from other coop builders. Please note that I'll be keeping coturnix quail, not chickens as they'd probably be a problem ( not to mention illegal ) here. I was wondering if I could use our metal gazebo type thing as a shell for the coop, and maybe cover the top in chicken wire and put the tarp over the wire. I'm not sure what to do with the sides though, make the whole thing chicken wire or should I use boards so I can keep them out there in the winter. It gets quite cold here in the winter ( I live in Philadelphia ) but oddly enough we don't seem to get much snow lately. Today was actually about 60 degrees Fahrenheit in the middle of Januray haha. We have really strange winters here but you never know, I know one winter it almost got below 0 and another we had a blizzard that lasted a few days. The weather is very unpredictable. I was thinking of also making an indoor coop in our basement for late December - February, or for storm emergencies. Here is this metal gazebo, what are your opinions? Please mind the mess we've been slowly cleaning and organizing!
