Hi all.... 1st real post, first silly question.... I am buildng a coop (my first), I have 2x dog kennels they are 74cm long and 84 cm wide and have apex roof's... My intention is to have 2 x light sussex and possibly a ISA Brown... The plot of land that I have....now remember I live in the most populated country on the planet...Holland... The plot is 8ft x 6ft so 48sq foot..The idea is to fence the area off 6ft high fencing....and have both of the dog kennels in the plot but on raised frames set at 2ft off the ground, thus allowing the birds free ground space to do what they do, allow space for me to clean out the kennels ...now the question I pose is this....it is a good idea to have one of the kennels for roosting and one for nest boxes.... Oh before I forget, as this will be a closed plot 6ft high fencing, roof with a combination of roof panel and wire mesh..(half and half) do the chickens need to be locked in at night....or can they just be left to the own devices to get into their roosting area? Being a newb I really am at your mercy here.. Many thanks Dave.
