Setting up our first coop and run, and reading as much as we can on this forum to get close to right on our first try. Here's our stat's: Location: Eastern PA Population: 4 hens, all winter-hardy breeds Coop: 4' x 4' x 7' high = 4 sq.ft. per hen Run: 6' x 8' x 7' high = 12 sq.ft. per hen Q1: Roost & poop board heights? I see some with poop boards on the floor, others elevated. Q2: Feeder and water in coop only, or separate in coop and run? Q3: Pref. on waterers for winter use? I'm attracted to a lot of the automatic / nipple waterers, but don't see them as practical for our climate, unless there are heated versions. We're generally below freezing Dec. - Mar., with occasional nights below freezing as early as October and as late as June. We have no permanent electric to coop (yet), and location isn't fantastic for solar (shady sheltered location), so non-electric solutions are preferred. I can run extension cords, but would prefer to reserve that for the few exceptionally cold weeks (eg. < 10F), and not have them across the lawn for half the year. Thanks!
