Hello - We are up in Central New Hampshire. Our hottest months average in the 80s to high 80s with some days/weeks of 90s/high 90s. Our winters where we are are quite snowy, quite windy and just harsh in general (no, not as bad as Upstate NY or Canada but below 0 weather happens, with teens - 20s the normal highs. We are having a coop with run built and just want to confirm that we are not doing something wrong here. Total size is 12x6 The coop itself is about 4' of the length, with two long roost bars and 4 egg box/nests. Deep litter method with a removable floor so we can clean it out easier. The other 8' of length will be a fenced in, roofed (same roof that is over the coop portion, metal roof) run. I am planning on fencing the area in the area around the coop/pen to a decent size (not sure of exact dimensions but basically an outside that is a little more protected, one more obstacle for predators and a coralled area for them to hang out in, help direct them to free range in the area we want. In the summer, spring and fall we plan on letting them have full range around our 1.5 Acres during the day when we are home. Nights spent inside the coop area that is up off he ground. Mornings/times when we aren't around spend inside the smaller 8x6 run. In the winter, I plan on putting some plastic sheeting up on all, if not at least just the windward sides of the covered run attached to the coop. Only allowing them in the larger corralled area on warmer/snowless days. We are getting 12 Rhode Island reds. This gives them about 2 SQ Ft of ground space (plus the roosts) inside the coop. Plus about 4SQ Ft of closed in attached run for the snowy and cold days. Free range wherever they want the rest of the time. As long as we keep up with cleaning well are we doing our chickens a disservice or are we fine?
