I'm in the process of building my chicken coop for the chicks that I should be getting this week. My question is about having a dropping pit in the coop. Would like to know how many people have them and if the chickens will use them enough to make it worth it to put one in. This is the first coop I have ever built so any info would be of great help. Another question is about the little door that leds out into the run I need a door on it because of the cold where I am so does this mean it has to be a manual open and close door that I need to open and close daily?
