    I am new to chickens and live in northern Colorado. I was pondering the idea of putting the coop in our garage (coop will be insulated), with a door to an outside run that we could close at night. Any advice in this? Thank you soooo much! :)

    I have one of my coops in my barn. Just make sure it well ventilated and cool during the summer.

    I have my coop inside a post structure covered in roofing tin that we use as a hay and "toy" shack. We needed it built fast when we were given four free chickens and it has worked fairly well so far.
