In the Brooder
- Apr 16, 2014
This is a very CRUDE drawing of the coop. We are relocating it from it's little metal shed into this barn/tack room. Dimensions on the insde are 5x10. Where the triangle is is the door. It does open out so that frees up the space on the wall. The "barn" itself is really an L shaped structure so anthing that is not boxed in is open to the field. We do not have any other animals at this point but plan on having cows. The front 5 ft section and the 10 ft section with the door will be open to the pasture where cows will eventually be. Because of this, the nesting boxes will need to be INSIDE the coop, as much as I would love to have the ones where I can just lift the flap and get them out. UNLESS I decide to do that and have the boxes stick out into the run.
So, here's where I need the help....
Where to put the roost, and where to put the nest boxes? somewhere along the run side we will be cutting out a spot for the chicken door.
