    Emergency, my husband has changed his mind on where the coop needs to go and the area the post are going in the ground gets morning sun till about noon then in shade. in the winter it has more sun because of no leaves on the trees. I live in vermont, an I am getting chicks this weekend at a swap. Hopefully buff orph. The coop is 5x5 and the run will be 12 x 10 feet. thank for a quick response

    I don't think morning sun in vermont would be a problem. As long as they can go in and out of the coop and have plenty of water at all times they should be fine.

    Afternoon shade will keep your coop cooler. Sounds fine to me.
