    Very new (purchased less than 6 months ago) 10 X 10 Amish shed that I converted to a chicken coop. Windows have been made secure and 3 separate pens have been divided out so that 3 separate flocks can be maintained with small area for storage. Each pen has its own working slide pop doors made with 1/2 inch plexi glass that open with pull ropes from the outside. Windows have a hardware cloth frame making them predator proof. Fan ventilation and predator proof vent added. Shatter and fire proof light fixture mounted as well. Can easily be converted to one large pen by removing interior framework and chicken wire. Presently I had a dog kennel mounted on either side to act as runs when not free ranging. Double doors and ramp paint in great condition.

    It will take a large trailer to move. I have the contact info for a local company if needed.

    I paid well over $4800 for it only 6 months ago and added a lot of work to it. Asking $3000 OBO

    photos of it below

    Please e-mail if interested. Shed is located in Stanford CT and in an easy area to pick up.

    long story I have also been selling off many of my flocks I will only be keeping some as the place in stanford is no longer available so I have to sell what I put up there this past spring. I also need back surgery so I need to slim down anyway. My Ameraucanas are going to a nice family only an hour away so when I am finally settled in my own farm I will get eggs and start back up. My Araucanas have already been sold. I am still wondering whether or not to keep my white silkie flock. I may just sell some and keep a few and put them in a mix silkie flock for now. Anyway thats a long answer but if I dont get enough for the coop in the time I am allowed I will just have it moved to my house and dump it on the side of the driveway I am just afraid that it will atract unwanted atention as I have so many sheds already lol and it is too large to get to the back of my property where I could actually use it which is why I built the shed that is there now.

I would throw them all together to be able to keep them all-then when the opportunity comes seperate them out only takes a few weeks to be "pure again" :)I wish I could help in some way [​IMG]
