There is just no way for the current coop to pass my security standards, no matter the upgrades my husband and I have talked about, I won't be comfortable leaving them out there over night in the current coop. The current coop has been painted, and matches the decor of the garden it's attached to, I don't want to remove it. So I'm thinking of just putting in a secure night time coop that they can be "herded" into at night. I image herding them into a coop isn't going to be anymore difficult than doing what I do now, chase, catch, bring in living room, listen to them complain about being indoors for before settling down for the night, and then carrying them out first thing in the morning and listening to them complain about having been inside all night lol. So a night time secure coop, and a day time place to get out of the sun, enjoy ice cubes, and do whatever it is chickens do during the day-time-coop should work out right?
