Greetings, I will soon build a fence and coop. I mostly know what to do, having read several posts here, and also having gotten advice from neighbors with chickens. The run will be fortified on five sides, to stop hawks from flying in, with underground chainlink fence on the perimeter to stop the raccoons. I will move some large vines so they can shade the run in summer. For the coop I plan to use the deep litter method. I think I will put a tarp at the bottom, and a removable 2X10 board at the bottom so I can pull out the litter quickly every 2 months or so (remove board, grab tarp, pull). I have an idea of light requirements, and where to put roosts and nests. I plan to use my unlimited supply of dead leaves as litter, both in the coop and in the run (I am hoping two tons a year will be enough). I have a few questions: 1) I have some spare insulation in the house (the pink stuff). Should I stick it under the roof? I assume the walls will get pooped on. 2) Is it worth stapling a plastic layer on the walls, for a quick and easy washdown when removing litter? 3) to have some winter eggs, do I need both light and heat? There should be 7 chickens, and one or two eggs a day should be enough.
