Hiya! So I'm finally going to be able to get started with chickens this year and I'm so excited. I'm purchasing third acre property, but it is kinda weird shape. It is long and skinny, like 30'x400'ish. I'm wanting the out buildings to be on the long skinny side too so I don't have to worry about getting them too close to the property line. Anyway, I do 3D modeling, and I don't know a whole lot about framing, but I thought I would give it a shot. All the lumber models are based on actual lumber dimensions, not "2x4". For ventilation, the 8(4 on each side) triangular pieces of plywood will be removable with hardware cloth screening for max airflow in summer and the 4 tops ones will be able to fold in for winter venting. If I need more ventilation in summer, the incline under the roosts will be closed off from the chickens with wire, so I could crack those open or make a removable screen over the opening. The side doors open for easy litter scooping and the 8 nesting boxes are accessible from outside. When I need access to the inside, I have a human sized door next to the chicken door. There is 58 feet of roost, the inside is a little less than 160 sq ft and the overall outside dimesions are less than 200 sq ft, so no permit needed to build. Ok, what am I missing? How many chickens would this fit? Will I need more or better situated ventilation? Would I have enough nesting boxes for the the amount of chickens I could fit? I haven't compiled a list of building materials yet, so I don't know how much it would cost to build just yet.
