My coop is nearly done! I started with a $25 dollar dog house from Craigslist. I sawed, drilled and painted and now we have this... I drilled small ventilation holes all around the top sides and back. I added 2 hardware cloth vents on the upper sides. I added a roost, pop door and a linoleum floor. It's 4 feet by 6 feet and we have 5 girls in there. I'm going to be building the run off the left side this week. I had to get the girls out of my garage though, so we put them in yesterday. What do you guys think of the hardware cloth on the front? Is that going to be too breezy for them? At first I had planned to close it off, but it was stuffy in there when I was working. I thought maybe I needed more ventilation, so I used the wire instead. But then last night it was in the 50's and I was worried about my babies being too cold. I'm in So California. It gets to be in the high 90's low - 100's in our neighborhood for 1-2 months in the summer, I think we get down to the high 30's occasionally in winter, but never colder than that. I need to pull the door off and frame it. It's not closing properly. I'll work on nesting boxes when they get a little older. Other than that, anything I'm forgetting?
