    We're hoping to move our coop (if this rain ever stops) to our new home in the country. We are on septic and want to know if we need to place the coop away from the leech field and away from the septic system altogether ?

    I don't think you have to, but I would if you have room. If you need to have the septic tank pumped down the road or have the drain field worked on allthe noise and commotion might upset your girls. I say this becasue we just had to have a bachhoe in to dig new drain fileds and it was quite noisy.
