Where can I find a small shed for food

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

So we are looking to purchase a small shed that can hold our chicken food and bedding. We need it to be predator proof(so be able to lock and and be sturdy with no holes) and water proof. We went to Home Depot and all the they had were big sheds. Any ideas where we could find a smallish one that fits our needs? What have all of you done with their food?

Hi,

Go to http://www.craigslist.com and look for kids playhouses. there are usually a bunch of them for sale for 50. to 100. .  The "Step Two" ones are larger and useful. screw some Plexiglas over the windows. Screw it to a pallet which has been covered with some plywood. Viola! Install a hasp and latch and you're good to go.

 Best,

 Karen

My flock now resides with Farmer Karl in PA.   

  I know he will do well by them. Karl is a knowing poultry man.

RIP Hellbender, my friend. Good friend, good heart, gone too soon.

Maybe Google/search storage 'cabinet' instead of 'shed'.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

 

Quoting centrarchid:

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

Rubbermaid makes several small sheds, one of which might suit your need.
