So my dad decided instead of having an enclosed coop we would have an open one. I didn't mind that but begged to atleast enclose the roost and nest boxes for extra protection at night. Finally he listened and enclosed it for me. The floor is just the dirt ground though and gets muddy and nasty. I use pine shavings, but once it rains the whole thing gets soaked and I have to remove it and replace with fresh. Lately, we have had alot of rain so you can imagine the mess I am dealing with. I want my chickens to have a cleaner coop, but I have no idea what to use to keep it dryer and cleaner. Should I just fill it will sand? If I use sand, do I need to put something down before the sand? Should I level it, then put a plywood floor down? Concrete it? Here is a picture of my coop. I don't have any recent pictures of the enclosed coop. But imagine the entire outside of everything under the roof fenced in from top to bottom with wire. The door would be facing you to the right corner of the coop. The ladder going up to the nest boxes has been moved parallel to the roost inside the coop. This pic shows the bottom of the door (and my handsome roo Reuben) Hopefully it helps paint the picture of my coop. Thanks for the help and suggestions!!
