Location... Central Florida... very hot and very humid summers... winters not so much and seldom temps under 30. Number of chickens... probably 6. We will be clearing thick brush to place the pen and coop. The less clearing the better but the welfare of the chickens comes first. The plan is to make a 12X12 run that will also enclose a raised coop of about 4X6. Since the coop will be raised it does not reduce the area the girls will be able to use. Also, the area covered by the coop will provide shade in summer. Would it be better to put the coop outside the run? Does part of the run being covered by the coop 'matter' to the chickens? As always, input is appreciated.
