I have some improvements to make on it, but I'm pretty optimistic. Some of my first plans are to add some vent toppers over the apex of the closed coop area. Upon inspection, there is a gap at the top where rain and any kind of weather can fall right in onto the bedding and chickens. I want the ventilation but not the rain! Since I live in Texas, I am also going to add some shade screening along the top level of the coop. There are not any nesting boxes in the closed coop so I am considering adding some. The people before me just put straw on the bottom and had the chickens lay wherever. Thoughts? For the chicks getting into the lower level, do I need a ramp or will they just fly when they're older? Do I block off the lower level until they're older? They are about 3-4 weeks now. Oh!! I almost forgot, is straw the best thing to put in the coop or something else? Pine flakes? Where should I put their water in the coop? They just keep shoveling all their bedding into the water. And I planned to get a fly catcher bag thing to hang in the coop, is that a bad idea or will the chickens just eat the flies and I don't need to worry about them? We go to pick up the coop tonight so I'll make some adjustments to the coops design and hopefully put them in it this weekend. They are trying to fly/flutter out of the container I have them living in while in my kitchen!
