We moved into a new home and converted a dog kennel into a chicken coop. My hens have been sleeping in their old tractor supply coop that I put inside the dog kennel but it is falling apart so I need to build them a place to sleep that is warm in the winter but I have no idea what to build or how. I tried to put roosting sricks in the dog house but they wont use it because its not off the ground. I'm looking for suggestions on how to build an easy to clean sleeping area for 6 hens. The kennel has goat fence covered my chicken wire so I need to build something to protect them from the elements.
