    We're about 20% done with the coop right now. It's 48 sq ft, and we'll have 4-7 chickens making their home in the coop. It's behind our house in a wooded area and raised 4 feet off the ground for predator protection. They'll be 2 doors for shoveling out poo and letting them out and we're not 100% sure Where we want the run though. Any suggestions before it's finished? [​IMG][/IMG][/IMG]

    What are your plans regarding windows and ventilation?

    We don't plan on windows, but under the roof we plan on putting a 1-2 inch high opening with possible screening for air circulation.
