Drainage around a chicken coop

Homey chicken coopHelen wrote in to share her lessons in coop locating and building:

"The one thing I learned after starting with chickens is to make sure there is drainage into their run.  My run was at the bottom of a slope where I throw tons of snow from my driveway.  Well, spring run off and heavy rains gave me lots of mud and stink. 

"I just finished building a new chicken coop, 24 square feet and only spend about $175 getting most of the materials from friends or the dump.  The green wood is from an old out house.  Notice the
moon on the door!"

Don't forget that tomorrow's the last day to enter our contest to win a free EZ Miser!  I'm looking forward to hearing what lessons you've learned since beginning with chickens.
