Hello All, I found a great design for a simple pvc run with a roost. I plan to attach nesting boxes along the back (on the left side of the picture at the end of the roost) and put a small door on the top over the boxes for easy cleaning and so I can collect the eggs easily and a larger vertical door at the opposite end. There will also be roofing over the half of the coop where the nesting boxes will be to provide shade and shelter from the rain. Since I recently lost one of my hens, I want to make this run as predator proof as possible so I plan on having wire across the whole bottom of the run. My fear is that this will prevent the hens from scratching and foraging and ~~could possibly damage their feet. Does anyone have experience with this and maybe some advice or suggestions? Any input would be greatly appreciated!
