We just purchased a home on 4 acres back in August after a 2.5 month grueling ordeal trying to get the seller to handle some things so we could close. But anyway This is the coop that was already on the property from back in June: Inside the coop. They took the old pool liner and used it to cover the floor (no, our pool still doesn't have a liner lol). There's ONE lone roost just in the corner on the left of the image. Today, the coop is looking more like this... If you hadn't heard about the recent torrential rains we had in SC - let me tell you. 3 straight days of mostly buckets. Fortunately fared well compared to other locations. I'm not surprised to see water buildup in the coop though. This is under the "roost." These are the beams over the roost area. They're the only ones that are in that condition. Roost and nesting boxes to the left, door to the right. I honestly have no idea how to turn this on...I haven't really looked lol Another photo of the roost/wet spot. And also...the door doesn't close. I had to fight to get it open The floors are okay but they feel a bit soft in some places. I'm thinking that it *might* be worth it to just remove the floors and go with a deep litter setup in there. I suppose that depends on what it looks like underneath and if the floors have any bearing to the structure staying upright. I'm interested in having maybe 5-6 chickens, so maybe 3 breeds, max. What are things I need to focus on with the coop before adding residents? Getting the door to close properly and the ceiling beams at the top, for sure. How much of that overgrown mass of vegetation in the run would actually be able to be eaten by chickens? I'm thinking not much, but wanted to ask to be sure. Please feel free to point out obvious things to me Thanks!
