We are first time chicken owners, and dh decided to build the coop himself, without plans. It's pretty much done, but I have a few questions: The floor is just regular wood, but he designed it so that the whole bottom pulls out like a big drawer for cleaning. Should we line this with vinyl tiles or something for easier cleaning? There are small screened in parts along 3 sides of the top, only about 1-2" wide. Is this going to be too drafty? We live in a very mild climate - it never snows here. Where do we put the food and water - in the coop or in the run, or both? His current design for the run is long and narrow - about 3'wide and maybe 10' long. We have 3 chickens now, and would have 5 at max (we are in the suburbs). Is a narrow run okay? They will be let out into the general yard quite often. We were going to have the floor of the run just be dirt, but then I don't understand how to keep it from being really smelly. Do I pull the run out every now and then and turn over the dirt? If so, how do we attach the run to the coop but still have it be removable? (I hope this isn't a stupid question, but I can't figure this one out!) We weren't originally planning on having wire along the bottom of the run, but digging out a trench won't work because of where it's located. Do we need to have wire along the bottom? Oh, and a nesting box question: How high should the "walls" be, and is there supposed to be a top on them? We need help!
