Hi All! We have purchased our first pullets (2 Ameraucanas, 1 black giant, & 1 barred rock). We have made it to 4 weeks with them on our back screened porch. Hubby is going to start building (hopefully?!) the coop this weekend. We live in Wesley Chapel (west central Florida) and need open air coop ideas of any kind. Most we see on here are 4 sided. These are our simple criteria: -No electric -house 4-6 chickens/hens (no roosters ) -sand run/ pine coop w/ roost and removable poop board -nest box (2?) -predator proof (fox, armadillos, snakes, opposums, dogs, ferrel cats, squirrels?, hawks, vultures, etc.) (so we will have the run and coop covered completely) -rain (while we rarely get a couple of days below freezing a year, we do get torrential downpours in summer afternoons) ****The coop we found below is our main idea- BUT we would add 1) an exterior nest box on the back end...and maybe 2) "wire" the inside front wall where the hen door/ladder is, and the back attached wall/not pictured- as we have a conservation/trees growing right up to that side for SOME rain protection. 3) The roof will be raised up for ventilation over "wire". Probably no slide-out tray. Do you think we should still do more open? Will it be too hot without fan, etc.? ANY suggestions, please!) http://www.woodenart.org.uk/products.php?product=The-Harry-Chicken-Coop-Hen-House-and-Run-# Any pictures or advice from those in humid HOT climates is much appreciated, as most of the beautfiul coops pictured online and on BYC are for areas that get cold. We can deal with the rare cold spells we do get in temporary ways. TIA Can't figure out how to add image- so am adding link above instead.
