    Greetings:
    I am planning on buying the coop pictured below. It will be delivered as it is 8X10 I believe. I was wondering what people thought about the openness at the bottom. Do you think it will be too windy? I'm in the GA mountains and it can get cold here although not for long periods. The roosts are just off the ground.
    Would appreciate any input.

    Omg that coop is beautiful and very spacious, tough if you are getting that coop may I suggest that you put more chicken wire blow the coop like a skirt because if you dont predators will be killing your chicks
    do you let them free range cause if they are in that all day they can get bored and crowded please if they are free range put them in at night
    cause thay are alot more vonarable to predators outside at night
    hope this helped[​IMG]

    Thanks for the input. I think it is a very beautiful coop too. I will ask the builder to reinforce the bottom with hardwire. All birds free range all day so it is only for sleeping and laying. I have turkeys too.
