New chicken coop

A good friend is moving to France and needs a "caring" home for her three hens and one rooster. Do we know anything about chickens? Only from books and warnings from several friends. This coop is rising in the corral next to our tortoise corral. It will have two chicken wire runs as well as three doors. I designed it both for winter warmth and summer coolings. Most walls open up to good cross ventilation and summer shade. I'm hoping for year around organic eggs and yet one more activity to keep Linda and myself busy as the kids are leaving the nest. We are using leftover greenhouse glazing for doors, as well as light and warmth. Stay tuned; Ed
