(If this is in the wrong place, I apologize.) Hubs and I are in our first, starter, house. I've got room in the back of our lot for a small coop and run. But we won't be in this house for more than a few more years as it is only 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and we're getting ready to start our family. My question is, how much of an impact on the ground will a fixed coop and run (not a tractor, city regulations state a min distance from all dwellings) have? The areas that I would be able to put the coop and run on are shady areas where grass doesn't really grow anyhow. Or, even worse, will a suburb house sell with a chicken coop and run? I've thought about making it so that they can be disassembled and moved to our new location (when the time comes) and then amending the soil so that the yard can be reclaimed. Ideas, hints, tips, tricks, and advice are all welcome!
