I'm getting ducks in the next few weeks so didn't post as duck needs are a bit different to chickens and I thought there'd be someone far more knowledgable than me.

If you're worried about foxes, then would it be possible to add a door to the pop hole? Just a simple piece of board that's bolted on? Might be tricky with the access though.

I never use the pop hole door on my hen ose so don't worry about the cold.

Fox? Depends how likely a fox in your garden is. That won't be fox proof unless on slabs.

Thank you for doing that link for me.

Any advice? Does that ark appear OK without the need for a pop-hole? Don't want my chucks getting draughty (or caught out by Mr Fox)

I have bought this starter coop in preparation for my 3 ex-bats arriving. I have built it - looks great and solid. Problem is, the design doesn't have a pop hole (?) to close at night.

This is the design, so must be Ok. Just wanted reassurance from other chicken keepers using a similar ark. Hope my link works......
