Hey peoples, my dad finally finished my coop and brought it down to me, but he didn't listen to what I wanted. One of the big things that I think will be a problem is that the entire floor of the coop is hardware cloth. Now, I remember reading in some poultry book to not have them walking on wires because it can dig into their feet as they get heavier and that the pain might stop them from laying eggs later on. I have bamboo, wood slats, and halved round dowels that I want to put down on the floor on top of the hardware cloth, and my question is how far apart should they be? I don't want them too close to cause problems walking or getting their feet stuck, but I don't want them to be so far apart that they don't make any difference. Any advice?
