My hubby is almost finished with my coop.... there is really nothing but dirt and oak leaves on the ground where he built it. Do I need to put anything else in there?????????? Obviously we haven't put the wire up yet, the open side where the fence is laying is going to be a door to open and allow for easy cleaning.. it has linoleum floor.... (which I'm thinking I add my pine shavings to??????is that right).... and then there'll be a window on the west side and the south side will have access to the nest boxes... I'm thinking 2... I only have 6 chickens.... IF I get 5 or 6 more.. will that be too small an area? they can also get under the house.... and the door has a mechanism so that I can close them inside. they are right behind my dog pen, and beside my goat barn.
