At the moment, I have 26 Golden Commets, 6 RIR, 5 Auracana, and 4 NHR. I don't know if I will keep them all for a total of 41 yet or if I will thin down to more like 30. They are all under 2 weeks old right now. I live in Ohio. The plans for the coop at the moment are to build a 12' X16' shed type structure with 8' sidewalls, then seperate it into 3 seperate areas. It will have a dirt floor... I would like to use DLM. One 10' X 12' for the main coop with 8 to 16 nest boxes and about a 4' x 4' or 5' ft stadium style roost with probably other random branches mounted for additional roost space. One 6' X 4' area again for the chickens... whether it be to keep a specific breed seperate or for troublemakers... or babies... or whatever. In the 6' X 8' thats left I intend to have storage for feed and bedding etc. The front of the building will be a 12 ft side facing south. I have read that it is best to have south facing windows... and is it east or west facing that is good as well? can anyone answer that? To the east is woods and also where I intend to put my run. There may be a couple small trees inside the run. I know that horses and cow are not supposed to eat cherry tree leaves... is this true with chickens? does anyone know? The run will be at least 16' X 20'. I may extend it past the back of the coop 4 ft to make it 20' X 20' plus the 4' X12' behind the coop. I will probably use 2x4 wire (I have some already and can get more free) with chicken wire run the first 3 ft for extra predator protection. I am not sure what to use to cover it. The chicken schedule will run about 7am let out of coop into run for the day while I am at work. When I get home from work around 530 they will be let out to free range until they get locked in the coop for the night. Does anyone see any flaws? Which directions should I put windows? I would like advice and constructive criticism please. Thank You!
