Day one of my chicken coop. It measures 6' wide by 7' high by 8' deep. It's going to also have 12 nest boxes that measure 16" x !6" x 14". Do I need to seperate each nest box individually? I have it raised above the ground 2' so they can use the space underneath for a shaded area(it will be enclosed with chicken wire). It's also going to have a 8' x 8' yard that will be completely enclosed. I haven't quite decided on the entrance and the size of the entrance. This is going to be a window for ventilation/natural lighting here. Left side. (with rough opening for the nesting boxes) And the door opening. After I took these pics I worked on it again for a couple hours. The door is built and installed and most of 1 nest box is done. Please share any suggestions. I am new to keeping these things. And a couple pics of my fishtank.
