    Chicken tractor? do you need new nest boxes or roosts?
    Do you need to fence in your garden (if you have one) to keep the chickens out?
    Do you need to put any pens inside your coops for breeding or brooding?
    Thats it for me, good luck with it.

    Nice deal, more coops means you need to get more chickens.

    No reason why you can't build an addition onto your lovely big coop already out there! [​IMG]

    One obvious answer from me- bring it all here and we'll build another coop here! [​IMG]

    What a great deal! I am sure you'll come up with something soon. [​IMG]

    How soon do you have to make a decision on what to make with it?

    Wow, what good deal!! [​IMG]

    * build a porch onto your coop ( but it would
    really be hard to improve on what you already did)

    * build a coop for your neighbors!

    * since you can probably build anything once you set your mind to it, just start a new line of work (to be done in your spare time [​IMG]) The Amish that live around here build mailboxes, rocking chairs, fancy birdhouses, lighthouses you stick on your porch, and some very fancy doghouses. And it sells!
