    Hi everyone.
    I'm new to the forum and to chicken keeping. We live in a village in France that is quite hilly. Our garden is sloped, and I'm wondering if it is okay for the chicken run to be sited on a slope.?
    Sorry if this is a daft question, but we need all the help we can get.
    Many thanks

    Hi! A slope I think would be beautiful! Be sure to take a picture of it. It's very hot where I live, so I planned my coop to be facing away from the sun. Or make some shade if it's hot by you.
