2. Prop It Up

Elevating the nesting area's floor 2 to 3 feet off the ground keeps the flock's feet dry during wet weather. In this design, a ramp lets the chickens move freely between the coop and the run, while stacked double barn doors provide easy access to both spaces for cleaning. The walls of this coop were built tall enough to accommodate an off-the-shelf screen door from the home center.
