We've got a great thread about things to do for coop cleanliness so I was hoping we could share what you would do different next time? I realize we have a great coop section in the works too but I'm looking for things that we tried and worked awesome or that we would modify nest time: Cleaning Options Roosts Ventilation Size of coop Size of run Flooring for the coop Flooring for the run Sand, grass, wood shavings, Placement in shade/sun Cover Fencing One coop for all or would you have split the coop for some reason? Did you stain/paint use wood/metal? Vegetation inside the coop or nearby? I think most of you have mulitple coops - what did you learn the second time or what would you change? I for one, have been in the process of planning my coop for weeks now but keep delaying out of fear that I'm going to miss something and I'm seeing others that I think fear the same thing. It seems crazy but we've had our metal shed bought for a month now and the foundation is started but I'm driving myself crazy afraid thinking I'm going to build it and mess it up or miss something obvious. It's so much more than 4 walls and fencing!
