In the Brooder
- Mar 20, 2008
We have a coop on wheels that is approximately 13 feet by 15 feet. The floor is wire screen, which works well in the summer, but we want to provide a cozier floor for the winter. We were planning on laying plywood for the winter, but plywood is heavy and hard to manage. So, I had an idea to get a strong tarp that is a little bigger than the floor itself and lay it on the wire screen. Then I would secure it around the sides by hooking it to the walls using grommets and s-hooks. Once the tarp is in, I would add a thick layer of wood chips. Does that sound reasonable?
