Ok, so I am building my coop and am still in the construction phase. My biggest question is about the floor inside of my coop. I have put wire mesh as part of the floor inside of it to keep down on the mess. I also put a 3 foot by thirty inch piece of plywood inside of it in front of the door where the chickens will enter at night.(second picture is before i put the piece of plywood down, third pic shows it) It is right in the middle of the coop. Does anyone have a wire mesh floor in their coop or does everyone use a full plywood bottom in theirs? My thinking on this is underneath the "roosts" I would have it open so the poop would fall through on to the ground. My nesting boxes will be mounted where the open hole is on the side. Any help/opinions would be appreciated.
