Here is the latest photo of our 8x12 shed (with electricity) we've decided to turn into a coop for 6 hens. We're getting the day old chicks on the 19th and I plan on using the Mama Heating Pad system in our house for about the first week before moving them out here.
We had a couple of mild days last week and were able to coat the floor with a layer of Blackjack #57. My next plan of attack is installing the roosts, but I'm not sure which wall to use. I've researched the proper height/width, spacing, etc., but I'm stuck on where to put everything.
That back window is on the east side and the pop door leading to the covered run (you can see the light coming in on the bottom left) is on the south side. There's also another window, a bit larger than the one here in the picture, that's cut out of the main door. I'm also planning to keep their water and food here in the run to keep the rats, opossums, and raccoons out of it.
I guess my main question is does it really matter which wall I use for the roosts and boxes? I appreciate any advise, as this is our first experience with chickens!
