We got a free coop from friends to start our urban backyard flock. It arrived recently and it's in need of a lot of attention and I'm not sure where to start. I'm going to post my comments, thoughts and pictures below and would love attention called to anything I'm missing. Please note: TOTALLY new to all of this so be kind Thank you! The coop is going in our dirt/weed yard, and since we definitely have burrowing rodents, I put galvanized steel hardware cloth (1/2") under the coop and pinned it with stakes. I've heard raccoons (which are very prevalent here) can open these slider locks. Suggestions for alternatives? Our other predators are skunks, possums, rats. Can I have the hardware cloth floor and then put some other bedding on top of it? Researching the deep litter method but I am totally open to anything. We live in the SF Bay Area, in Oakland. Does there need to be a roost inside the actual coop? Best bedding for the nesting box? Does it need any divider if we get 2-3 chickens? I need to repair the sliding tray with a board to support it. What else am I missing?
