Hi. We are newbies to chicken raising. We just got 8 Red Sex Links and 3 Ameraucanas not sexed. We have a two level wooden playset that we would like to convert into a coop since our son no longer plays with it. Here is a photo. All suggestions are greatly appreciated. Our thoughts were to make the swingset area (they have been taken down) into an A frame run area. There is an area on the bottom of the playset with a picnic table and an upper level that would be good for roosting. Obviously the slide needs to come off and we were going to put a metal roof on it. Above is another view where I thought we could add the nesting boxes to the outside. You can also see the inside picnic table in this picture. Not sure what to do with it. We were going to put a metal roof on top and add a ladder going from the ground to the top of the picnic table and then from the top of the picnic table to the upper level. Obviously, parts of it need to be framed in more and then the entire coop enclosed in wire. How much ventilation is needed? We are in central GA and our summers are HOT and winters fairly mild. Also, do we put pine shavings on top floor and leave the bottom as natural ground or put shavings on the bottom as well? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We paid $2000 for this about 5 years ago and hate for it to go to waste. Thanks.
