I'm cutting it close on getting the coop ready to get the first 3 girls out before the new batch arrives. I've run into a roadblock on the door, though. I'm converting an old outbuilding to use as a coop, and it has a corner feeder in it that's attached to the building with nailed metal plates. Without having a sawzall or similar, it's not going anywhere, and is blocking part of my plans for the chicken door in the coop. I wanted to do an interior vertical sliding door, raised up about 12" from the floor of the coop (plan to do DLM). With the layout of the coop/run, I can only do their door on that side of the building. The rest of that side has a workbench (will be roost w/poop board) spanning it, that would limit the ability to have a door slide up. I feel like interior would be better for weather, so I won't have to worry as much about rain and such as I would with an exterior sliding door, as it would be exposed to the elements on the west side of the building. I like the idea of the vertical sliding door so I can open/close it from outside the run. I guess another option would be an outside horizontal sliding door, but that would be more difficult to manipulate from outside. Any ideas that I may be completely overlooking?
