We are trying to finalize up our coop plans, woohoo! I'd like some final feedback. The coop will be 5x3 including nesting boxes, and a little over 3ft at the peak. We plan to have an attached run that will be about 9x6. The whole setup will be along the back of our house, next to our patio. We are trying to keep it by the house to a) keep it out of sight (though most of our neighbors know it will be there and it won't be illegal) and b) for shade, since our yard has zero shade except for the house. We have no fencing so true free-ranging can't happen, I don't think. We wanted to try a tractor, but the logistics of making it easily moveable and parkable where we want it to go, and also big enough for 5 chickens, just wasn't working. We are going to essentially copy this coop [forum won't let me add in url] Does the a-frame run work well? Do you wish you'd made your coop higher off the ground so they could use the space underneath? Looking for pros/cons. Also, we are thinking of some kind of portable a-frame tractor run for mock free-range time so they can have more access to new grass, bugs, etc.
