I am a total newbie here, so please forgive the questions if they seem simple. I have seen several people pouring a concrete foundation and digging post holes, is this really necessary? I was hoping to build a structure that just sits on the ground. I plan to have no more than 4 hens. Also, I am in west michigan, so winters are cold and snowy, do those in similar climates insulate and run electricity to your coop? Where I would like to place my coop in our yard, it would be very hard to run electricity to it. Thanks so much in advance for you help!!!
