Hi all, last year I had plans to put in a coop at my current property but things have changed and I just bought a house. The property has an octagonal area that's gravel covered and bordered with 4x4's around it's perimiter on the back lawn (surrounded by grass) that the previous owners used for their above ground pool. The area is about 15' in diameter. Well, I have no interest in wasting water or money on a pool, so i'd like to know the feasability of using this area in the design of a coop. Would this area be good for anything? Should I rake up the gravel? What would you do with it if you had it?
