The coop is finally underway...kind of. We still have many steps before we actually start building it, but hubby and I cannot agree on the need for a floor. I live in the Pacific NW and I know the wood will eventually rot if it is not up off the ground, but everything is going to rot eventually here. I am trying to not only plan what will be best for the girls but also for me cleaning the coop. All the coops I have seen on here have floors. Does anyone have a dirt floor in their coop? I am going to put shavings or hay or something similar down, but I would prefer not to have an actual floor if it is not necessary. I should add that due to the location and the design of the run area, it will be very secure so no predators will be able to get in.
