mamaowl, I do clean every day, I actually enjoy being with the chickens after spending a day behind a desk! However, I have added more ventilation as when the nights get darker I won’t be able to spend any evenings with them and clean only at the weekend. The run is on soil (now covered in sand) I have dug 3 ft. down with the wire mesh and skirted it out. I have already experienced Mr Fox earlier this year hence I have re-built the coop and run. The pop hole is closed from the inside and this is very secure. Laffinfowl - The shed is raised off the ground, with wood all the way round to stop anything from getting under the shed and through to the run. I have added a couple of pictures; the nesting box is actually mounted on the wall about a foot from the ground.
