Just want to say really enjoying it here at BYC!! We have pretty much finished the plans for our new chicken coop but have a few questions about dropping boards Our coop is going to be 6x8 (for 10 Delawares): how large do we need to make the dropping boards? What do materials do we need (in other words how is built)? How do you build the pull-out type? We plan on having one long roost along the back of the coop (8'side). Also, about flooring.... we thought of using a wood flooring, would it be fine to polyurethane the boards for easier cleaning? Thanks for all the help EggheadsRus __________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Proud owners of 2 Shire Horses, 3 Nigerian Dwarf Goats, 2 Yorkshire sows, 1 Duroc boar, 3 Australian Shepherds, 1 Irish Wolfhound and soon to come 10 Delaware chickens!
