I am considering purchasing the Ultimate Chicken Coop. I live in the foothills of Southern California on a third of an acre. I have a space large enough for the Ultimate Coop and a run, between the back of my hardware-cloth surrounded raised beds and the back concrete wall. I have a wonderful catio, made of galvanized coated steel, and am thinking of putting that and ¼ inch hardware-cloth on the two ends and the top, for protection. Although the chickens will have the run of the backyard, I wonder about heat in the Ultimate Coop (remember that this is Southern California. There are plenty of trees for shade during the day. Here is my backyard view.
