Front View Outside View
Roosts
Two by fours in a cross pattern to maximize roosting space.

This roost configuration may help to avoid fighting over the top roost,
and keeps the chickens from soiling each other, while they sleep.

Nest Boxes
The upper nest box is at the same level as the roost;
Avoid placing nest boxes above the roost;
Chickens prefer to sleep in the highest spot in the coop
and will sleep in the box if it is positioned too high.

Bedding
Pine shaving used for bedding and nest box material.
Deep litter method
Involves adding additional bedding periodically and stiring the bedding;
The litter will drop to the bottom and dry out, eliminating the need to change the litter as often.

Windows
Hardware cloth covers a 2inch frame around the windows, keeping the chickens from breaking the glass, escaping when the windows are open and helps to keep predictors out.
