Ok, I have a question. The floor in the coop was made removeable (is that a word?) so that we could take it out and clean it. I got to thinking, in the summer about adding wiring and leaving the wood off. Then I read on a thread that maybe wire is not a good idea because the poop would stick to it. So then I started thinking about maybe taking the whole thing off and just putting some small boards accros the bottom so they could get to the nest boxes and the roosts. Does this sound like it could work? This would be in the summer when it is warmer. Here is the coop, we have since added hard wire cubes (for wire shelving) across the bottom, and with the dogs, I dont think predators will be an issue. I had planned on using the wire cubes to make the floor. Edited to add: We will be moving it every few days. So we could spray down the wire and then move it, so we would not have to worry about the mess. What do you think, wire/ no wire?
