This is my first time having chickens and though our climate is not severe, I know I should take a few precautions to help my kids (chickens and roos) deal with the switch. What have you done? Right now my kids are just in an area that is fenced in by cyclone fencing which they get out of everyday so I get my daily exercise chasing them back in What I call their coop is just a 10X10 6ft high area of cyclone fence that has a door going to the larger area but gets closed at night to keep them in. This larger area is what has the roosts and nest boxes and currently is covered on the top and 2 sides by shade cloth to protect against the sun and heat which has worked wonderfully thus far. However, last night it rained enough to soak the floor of the coop, fortunately just two days ago I finished building the new roost that is covered so no wet kids! Should I just tarp the area that is currently covered with shade cloth or do I need to completely enclose them? What do you do?
