I'm in the planning phase of starting my flock and wanted to get so expert advice before Ispend a lot of money and then realize my coop design won't work. I'm in northeast Texas and know I have to deal with heat and lots of predators. My plan right now is to fence in an area that's 30'x10' and put 4 small (4 chicks) coops and a large (20 chicks) coop in there under two large bushes. I'm hopeful that the bushes will help keep the coops cooler. The chickens will free-range my garden and yard so I'm not worried about space for them. Do any of ya'll have any advice/opinions/views?
