We'll be getting chickens soon and right now were starting the building process. At the moment we are putting up three sides, left, right, and back. But my dad says we don't need a front. He's had chickens before at his old fire station, and their coop didn't have a front. If your not sure what I mean.. here is the picture of the coop right now. This is the coop and you see that there is no front? well that what I meant, should I put a front on? This is kind of a side view. The front part where the gray wooding on the bottom is is going to be the covered part of the run, more like a deck outside of a house. This is just another view. And this is the outside part of the coop. The black thing is just a ladder and will be taken out soon. But you see on the left where there is a very small piece of the tree? well the outside part of the run will go down that way a bit also. We'll be sticking them in soon, right now there just leaning up against the sides where we want them. Also, when you look at the first picture, there are somewhat cracks at the top, were going to cover those up with some mesh of somekind too. So hopefully you got what I meant. And heres the question again: Should I put a front on the coop, if so, why? my dad kind of will only put one on there if he has the facts.. heh.
