I am building my coop and really liked another members pull out drawer design for a coop floor but am using 1x1 hardware cloth instead of slats of wood. Will chickens be able to walk on this without a problem and will the poop fall through or will it get hung up? Anybody use this? I'm new to chickens and chicken poop. Also, I have fallen victim to chicken obsession and want to keep 5 or 6 hens for laying. Will my 3&1/2x4 foot coop house them? Ill be keeping. 1 red sex link, a buff orphington, a Rhode island red, a black australorp and a white rock. I really want to keep a black sex link as well. I just don't know if I'll be overcrowding. The coop sits on a chicken tractor that I 'll move regularly but the run is 3.5x 8. I will let them free range on the weekends.
