    Gotta get this finished so the chicks can move out of the living room! Any input would be appreciated. The coop is going to be 6ft x 5ft with a 5 x 12 run. It will have wheels attached so we can move it around.

    do you have a place for a nesting box and a way to get into the box to clean it out and get the eggs?

    The nest boxes will be on one side with a small door for egg access. The back is mostly for clean out. I probably will have linoleum or similar on the floor after it is painted. Should be able to rake the old litter right out the back into a wheelbarrow.

    I think it looks good. My only question is will there be any openings in it for ventilation?
