We finially have Chickens!!! My Husband grew up with chickens and I grew up in the city and have never been around chickens. We plan to use this shed has part of our coop.We moved this shed onto our place 2 years ago. The finial deminsions of the coop will be 5ft by 14ft with a 150sq ft of run.

[FONT=book antiqua,palatino]As you can see it needs alot of work. We are reusing the insulation for the coop. [/FONT]
Hubby took out the big door and got the studs up.
And here are his "big" helpers!!! Our children Roseanna and Wesley.
A few days later Hubby got the OSB up and the window in!!! Rain was coming so it need to go up quick.
We got some used tin at my in-laws that is going on the outside and on the inside.
So far we only spent money for 8 studs, everything else we had or was given.!!
More coming soon....
Got the studs up and the tin.
The poop door, it's on a pulley system that goes up and over the coop and comes down by the door!! It pulls down and hooks on the screw, there are old window weights to help with the leverage. I have a brillant Hubby!!!
looking in from the poop door!
All finished... working on the roosts.
The roosts, they are on hinges from an old gargage door, so they can be raised to clean under.
