Drainage around a chicken coop
Helen 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!"
