Hi there, I am new here, and to the world of chicken rearing, and cannot wait to get my coop up and running! We moved onto a piece of property that has an old coop that once housed chickens. As you cam see, the coop needs some help! The run is huge, and is entirely closed in although a few places need patching. It also needs a nest box, some windows, ventilation vents and perhaps insulating? So, with the following in mind, what suggestions do you have for improving this thing? *I want to make the coop nice for the birds, but I can't afford to go hog wild. Basic upgrading here. *The existing coop is about 6x3 so I'm thinking that will accommodate around 4 chickens? I'd like to have more than 4, and I don't want them to be cramped in, so I am ready to double the size. The run is over 500 square feet. *I am not sure why the coop is elevated since in the summer we have trees that provide nearly full shade, and it does not get that hot here. *The chickens enter the coop from below, via the ramp under the coop. I had wanted to do a deep litter method because otherwise there would be poop collecting on plywood and that just seems awful! But I'd have to re-structure things to do this because I would need to close off the whole in the floor where the ramp currently connects. * We live in a high desert climate--low winter temps average 10s-30s during the coldest months, summers rarely get above the 80s and cool off considerably at night. We have virtually no rain, so water/humidity issues don't really apply to this coop. If we do get a strong rainy season I can tarp overhead the run. Standing water and swamping are never going to happen. I am sure there are other things I'm forgetting to add! But in the meantime, any feedback is greatly appreciated! Oh and that's my son trying to crawl into the rabbit cage. There's a rabbit in the coop right now, and I'm hoping he'll be able to stay (with his own housing). Thank you!
