Turning the garden shed into a coop.
It took a little persauding but I finally convinced my hubby that having chickens was much better than having a shed full of junk! Now, where to put that junk.......

Before...... After........

The garden shed as a shed. The garden shed as a coop.

(Below) The inside of the coop is starting to take shape.
Moved all the 'junk' out. The roost is up, the automatic door is installed (yeah) and we added 2- 4 foot windows. The coop is 8 x 12.

Added the dropping boards. They are removable and covered in scrubbable wallpaper that I picked up at our local restore.

They Just arrived!! I am so excited, was on pins and needles all day waiting and hoping. It was a long wait (82 days) and am just so incredibly happy that they are finally here. I can't believe I am actually a chicken mom, I've dreamed about this day since I was a child.
