Building my chicken coops under our deck? It's clean and dry under there, the floor's dirt and it would save myself and my husband (both building challenged) some work and add some structural integrity. We'll also add a couple of really solid dog houses under there, for our winter temperatures, in addition to roosts and nestboxes. The only possible downside I can *see* is that it might smell pretty bad, but with good hygine how much of an issue is it? And FYI, I'm looking at rebuilding 2 coops to house a total of 10 chickens (5 in each coop, one group standards, the other banties). I'm also going to have a fenced in area out in the yard proper, but. Thoughts?
