Below is a picture from my new property that I haven't moved to yet. In the background is the existing coop, which is in very sad shape. Originally I'd planned on remodeling it and using the concrete pad (previous owner's basketball court) in front as a patio, once painted. Now, after seeing all the really cute coops on here, I'm thinking of starting from scratch with a new coop and building it on this existing concrete pad. It'd probably keep predators from digging in. I'll have to figure out a way to permanently anchor the new coop to the pad for those high Oklahoma winds. Is this a good idea? Bad idea. It'll be a couple months before I even start building, so I'm open to any/all suggestions.
