Please check out our new coop-- an anniversary gift from my DH. Our 6 week old chicks seem right at home. It really was fun to watch them checkin' it all out. We still need to decide on how/where to put the nesting boxes. We have just four chicks so I may only do one, maybe two. Any advice? Also, our ramp is missing the little steps they need for going up and down but they seem to be managing okay for now. I hope this adequately protects them from predators with the hardware cloth apron that goes along the ground and up 3ft around the perimeter. One question... Is hardware cloth for the floor inside the coop that sits off the ground okay by itself? Does it also need litter or can I simply put litter in the nesting boxes once they are completed? Love this site!! I have so many questions even after a ton of reading. Thanks for any help!
