Coops

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA┬áThis is the door of the run OPEN. Every coop should have a run and a coop. The coop is where the chickens should sleep and it should be above the run because chickens like to be up high when they sleep. ­čśë The run is where the chickens should be in the day and it should be longer than the coop so they feel like they have more space there and so they will think that is where they should be in the morning. (if you don’t let them out into the yard in the morning. :)) ┬áOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This is the mesh that you should use for your coop otherwise your chickens will be killed by raccoons.

You should have nesting boxes with good wood chips so it is comfortable for the hens. The most you should have is 2 like in the picture because they like to have the same one as the other chickens.
