Wife and I purchased a very neglected and run down 6 acre farmette a couple years ago and got into chickens by accident. While the number of chores/projects/repairs/necessities around the property has no end, unfortunately the checkbook does. As well as my time.
I'm trying to weigh out the time vs cost of building my own shed for a second coop, probably around the 12'X8' size. I don't need anything fancy as my birds are livestock and not pets. Just need a safe, clean place for them to sleep at night and get out of the weather, lay eggs, or grow until time to butcher. I'm finding used sheds online for $500 - $850 in various degrees of rotting. Also, the used shed require me to go get them or having them delivered for a fee.
If anybody who's faced this problem can share their experience and if they would have done it the same way, I'd appreciate it!!
