    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.......

    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.

    3 Buff Orpingtons

    2 Light Brahmas

    2 Silver Laced Wyandottes

    Nice spacious coop
    But with no measurements or plans it’s not to helpful to the average person .

    Write out the details you added , how it looks doesn’t make a difference to chickens

    The coop itself is great, but this coop page could contain some pictures of the construction
