I am having a serious issue on where to put my coop. My chickens aren't big enough yet to need the coop but we are very limited on space. My dad wants to put the coop in our garage. The problem with that is there is not sunlight in the garage, it gets extremely humid in there over the summer(i live in michigan), and I would have to keep a fan on 24/7. Now he said closing off our back yard porch would be too expensive and too close to our neighbors home. I don't have any roosters and keep telling him that the porch is the better option, they are quiet most of the time and our neighbor is never close enough to our house to actually hear them. Please weigh in your opinions so I can show my dad its unsafe to keep them in the garage. I only have 6 chickens, 5 white rocks and one sea bright bantam. the coop we have is big and hold up to 18 birds. If we can't agree on anything soon I'm afraid I'll have to get rid of my babies and I REALLY DON'T WANT TO DO THAT. But If the garage isn't the safest place and the porch is too expensive then I don't want them to be in harms way.
