I have (approximately) 40 square foot shed for my two hens and two roosters. The shed looks like this: immediately when you walk in from the front, on either side are two feeders. About 5 or 6 feet in is an elevated platform that sits above the ground about 16 or so inches with a ramp leading up to it, it is about 4 foot long and has two nesting boxes on either side, my flock on one side and the white wyandotte rooster taking the other, the water is directly underneath the ramp. The shed is made out of old wood that i completely reinforced with ply wood. The very front is the only place in which there is a door and there are no windows. On the outside, I have a run that is a foot wider than the shed itself and 8 - 10 ft long (I can't remember lengths to the exact and I am away right now so I can't check). This all protrudes straight from the front of the shed and has its own door. Is there any suggestions you can give me on how to transform this without spending too much money? I want my rooster to be happy but I can't afford to remodel me shed at this time? Thanks for your help and suggestions! It helps a lot!
