I live in the city(Fresno, CA) and they don't technically allow chickens, however a lot of people have them anyway and the city doesn't really enforce it unless someone complains. I plan on talking to all of the neighbors immediately around us before we get them. I hear a rooster all the time and of the two neighbors across the street, one has a duck and the other has two chickens. Anyway, I don't want a coop that screams "I'm a chicken coop!" LOL I have a plan so far and wanted to run it by the pros before I proceed. Anyway, in the picture is the aviary we just built about a week ago. It's 8x12. I'm thinking of building the coop about 4 feet away from the aviary along the north side, but make it 6X12. The north and west side will look like regular wooden fencing, 6 ft tall which are the sides visible from the street. The east and south sides will be wire. The roof will be a little bit lower than the fence so it won't be seen from the street, I'm thinking tinted corrugated roofing to allow some light in, with half of the roof just chicken wire. Inside will be the coop and run. I'm hoping this will be sufficient for 4-8 hens. I want to use the deep litter method and raise bugs such as mealworms, crickets, and black soldier fly larva for them since I won't be able to free range. Thanks in advance!
