    Hi,

    I have a wide open back yard with no fence and backing onto a drop so there are no tress behind us. There is a large detached garage in the back right corner but other that there is no cover. It is quite windy as well so I am really in a quandary about potential coop locations. The back of my house faces south so the southerly winds really rip through the back yard.

    Anyone have any suggestions? Our plan is to get a small coop for 2 or 3 hens.

    Thanks

    I saw from a prior post that you appear to be in Newfoundland, but it helps to put the location for folks to give area applicable advice.

    I am not familiar with your climate, so don't have much to give.

    Yes I am in Newfoundland, so we get a decent amount of snow and wind for winter. I was hoping to do this relatively inexpensively as well.

    Thanks

    Thanks I was hoping to get some info on just strictly positioning with this one though.
