Hi there! I'm new to BYC - I have my chicks coming in a couple of days - so my husband and I are starting to plan out our coop to build. I need some advice from more experienced folks. What type of coop (with what specific features) would you recommend for our situation: - We live in Ontario, Canada - Our winters can get down to -20 C - We get alot of snow - Our summers are hot (up to 30/35 celcius) and humid - We will have 6 laying chickens - We want to make our coop as cheaply as possible! (doesn't everyone - It would be ideal to have some part of run or contained area as part of the coop. I hope to let them range freely a bit each day - but we do have a busy household with 3 little ones - so they need their own area to walk about safely as well - We do have quite a few natural predators near our house as we are rural - fox/coons/coyotes/hawks/dogs Ok - lets here your best thoughts and suggestions! Any links to pictures or design ideas would be great! thanks so much in advance - we are thrilled to be starting our chicken journey - we just want to do it right - and I am confident that all of you are the experts we need to do it!
