    We are currently building our chicken coop out of an existing old playhouse that isn't being used anymore. We would like to install a poop board and need suggestions for spacing between the poop board and the floor as well as spacing between the poop board and the first roosting board. Thank-you!

    That is what we did - used an old playhouse. To answer your questions, I think it may depend on how big a space you are working with. We made our poo-board about 2-3 feet off the floor with the roost (1) about 8-12" above that. The interior of the space was about 6'x6'. You can see what we started with if you click on "My Coop" under my avatar. How many chickens do you have? What space are you working with?
