    We're thinking of putting the coop up close to the house... is that not a good idea? also, there is a dryer vent near there........

    Both of ours are close to the trailer...it makes it easy to run electric to them and its easy for watering too!

    I had mine next to the house for a few months until I just
    moved them into my new barn/shed. It was great to have them
    close by. We had no problems.

    Check your local codes. Most towns require chickens to be
    a certain distance, usually at least 50 feet, from any house.
