YAY! My best friend is going to help me build my coop since I don't have any tools. We have drawn out a plan by looking at all the coops on this site. How should windows be placed? The place where I'm putting it has trees to the west and south, but the east and north is completely open. We are going to plant a tree of some sort next to it for shade. But I am not sure if the tree should be on the east or north. Or do we even need a tree?? I figure they need some sort of shade. We're going to have the coop raised a bit so that they'll have a place to get to underneath. Tips ideas? I'll start taking pictures once we get the foundation down. The ground slopes so it will have to have some support on one side. I'm so excited yaaaay!!!!!
