Hello my name is Jeremy and I live in n e Ohio. I'm an occupational therapist by day and now a chicken guy the rest of the time ... I built a small coop 3'x4' with a 13' run, all enclosed with welded wire and chicken wire . I have read a lot about what to do but have many questions and concerns (one i posted in the coop construction thread). I just got 5 hens literally 30 min ago... Not sure of age but they have feathers but are not full grown.. Very cute I have their food and water and granit and oyster shell in the coop ... Which I think is ok right? I eventually will leave it open all the time since it is fully protected but for their first night I locked them in to get used to it... My primary concern is cleaning the outdoor run since I have wire flooring I'm not sure what I should do... Put down plastic? Or hay but I'm concerned bc it rains often. Any help would be greatly appreciated !
