So my plan for my coop is to have it enclosed inside a big run that I will be building, with the back of the coop with the cleaning door attached to a side of the run with a hole cut in the hardware cloth for easy access. The run will be about 15-20 feet long by 10-11 feet wide. What I want to know is what I should do with the floor of the run? What I planned is to leave most the run with just the grass so the chicks have greens and dirt to pick at without me having to "free-range" and take them out, while also maintaining a space on one end of the run under the coop with sand and with the water and feed. Does this make sense, and is it ideal? Thanks for any suggestions.
