We are trying to decide where to place the coop in the yard. I want it tucked away in its own chicken area on the side yard and hubby wanted it in the middle of the yard. The spot I want to put it is in the current dog poo spot. Would there be a problem putting them there after we clean up and clear it out from dog poo? Will it be safe for them over there? Also I hope it wont be hard to train the dog to poo in a different spot. I loved a lot of the set ups people posted that live in suburbia like myself and just want everything to go together. We just bought this house and I want to finally feel like we have a home. I just want to make sure the dog poo isnt a problem or I will put it in a different spot. And it isnt tucked out of view.. our yard is only a 1/4 acre so its not like they will be seperate from us at all . Wanted to add that the poo doesnt pile up, its only one dog and she is a highly trainable bird dog, she would probably poop wherever we told her to I just didnt know if contamination was a problem.
