Hello from Texas. I am repairing my granddads barn, one side of it used to be his chicken coop it runs the whole length of the barn. Beside that he had a run that ran the length of the chicken coop. The coop is probably around 60 ft by 10ft and has a tin roof and the back wall is boarded up. the run is 60ft by 8 ft and completely enclosed with chicken wire. He did not have the coop completely sealed off from the run.probaly 20 ft of the coop had sheets of tin between the run and coop. That's where he had the roosts. I am thinking about boarding up the back 25ft so that they have a completely enclosed roost. As for litter, he never used any. Thoughts on that? It is just dirt. Also the boards on the back wall of the coop have 1/2 gaps, I was thinking about sealing them up, i don't know. I know I will be adding boards under the roosts to catch poop. Any more ideas, tips, or suggestions would be amazing. I've read so much stuff on what to do or not do I'm a little confused. This thing will be awesome once it's done, would just like to save some money if I can get any advice first.
