My former shed coop

    We converted our garden shed to a coop. It had built in shelves that became roosts and a poop board filled with SweetPDZ. We added a pre-built dog run next to it and cut a pop door between the two. I wish the run was a bit larger, I think next spring we may add a second one. The coop is pretty big for the three hens that currently live in it, but I have two 3 week old chicks who will move in soon. We added the screen doors so they can be open during the day when its hot. We have fairly brutal winters so the large indoor space will be helpful for that I think. The girls get some free range time in our large yard every day too. I have a pair of large desk drawers that I salvaged and am going to use for nesting boxes. I really could stand to paint it so its cuter, but I'm a bit lazy :). [​IMG]

    Be nice to know what the inside looks like - how you laid it all out.
