Hey guys! This is my first post to this message board. Im Laura and I am so excited to be getting 3 baby easter eggers next week. while they are growing up in the house im going to be constructing a coop. im going for the simple tall rectangular run with an elevated coop. my question is, am i looking for trouble by planning on building my coop virtually against the back of the house? i have a shotgun style home with a long narrow backyard that is exposed to an alley in the back. there arent a lot of other options location wise and it seems to me they would be safer closer to the house. i also am thinking that since there will only be 3 hens i wont have to worry so much about the coop stinking up the surrounding area. what are your thoughts/advice?
