So how we got started... someone gave us their coop, because they heard that we (I menan, I) wanted to have chickens (they were not allowed to have chickens on their property). So we built a run and then added the coop to it. The only thing we have left to do is some sort of roof thing to give the dears some shade and keep the raccoons out (did you know they can climb?!?!) . Anyways. Since the coop is really high, I was wondering would it be silly to put some spots for the chickens to hangout in some of the upper areas? Do chickens like to do that kind of thing? Or do they prefer to just scratch on the ground all day. Here is a picture of the run and coop. It's still a work in progress.
