Hello, I'm Nick from Southeast Ohio. I've never had birds before, but I'm renovating the existing coop on my new property. Here below are a few photos taken during my recent re-coop-eration efforts. I've since put on a new plywood roof and next up are door repairs and the metal roof replacement, gutters/rainwater barrel. I'm considering adding a run as I have over 1000' of metal deer fence rusting in a pile, however there is plenty of space to free range. Given the air-gaps between all the siding boards, I have a choice to make - board and batten with solid doors and engineer a plan for ventilation, or embrace the open air and add a screen door using hardware cloth. I'm leaning towards the latter, but I'm open to suggestions. The coop is 8'x14' and there are twelve nest boxes and a drafty brooder area.
