    Hi all - I just brought home a new chicken coop/trailer. It's about 3x4', so enough size for 2-3 hens. It's a lightly used coop that I found on Craigslist. The manufacturer can be found here: http://www.tuckerscoops.com/catalog/13

    We will also have an outdoor run, but that needs to be built. This will be my first chicken adventure, so I an heavily relying on experts like the people on this site.

    I have posted a bunch of pictures of the outside, inside, roosts, nest boxes, etc. Any suggestions as how to it could be modified before I put it to use? My first concern was with the ventilation - as there doesn't seem to be any.

    Let me know what you think,.

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Put in a vent up high in the gable above the roost on either side,or both sides

    You have a nice coop that is good for 2-3 hens. Good luck on your first chicken adventure.
