When designing a coop for your chicks, keep in mind that some woodland animals love to pay night visits to them, and they don’t want to chitchat. Foxes, raccoons, and opossums often get into the coops and steal eggs or even kill chickens.

Ann E. Stratton says in This Old House that a coop should be in the shade to keep it cool in the Summer and raised a few feet off the ground to keep the chickens’ feet dry when it rains and floods.

While the exterior is important to us, the chicken will appreciate a good inside layout more. They need about 16 hours of light each day to improve their egg-laying.

The inside of your coop must have enough light throughout Autumn and Winter. to keep the chickens comfortable. But you should install light bulbs that cast a warm, yellowish glow like the Sun because it will trigger the hens to lay eggs.

Vents are also important. They will keep the air circulating. Just make sure you don’t overdo it and cause a draft.
