Hi everyone, I see photos of some raised coops and some placed firmly on the ground. What's the difference? My half baked coop got my chickens (what's left of them) through a pretty cold winter (well, for NC). We made a frame of PVC, covered it with 2" chicken wire and then tied a huge tarp over the entire deal. Not pretty or cute by any means but the chickens called in home. I need to move their home and reduce their range so the predators on the mountain can't get to them. Any answers to my question above will be sooooo appreciated. I've learned that my first "great" ideas on any subject are usually a bust. My first 25 chickens, now six, are a prime example. I have to start over. Thanks in advance.
