    All the coops I read about are mostly wood, I am wondering if it would be ok to use a plastic type shed for a coop? It has windows and skylights.

    Yes you can use a plastic shed for a coop. If you got windows and a skylight yours is nicer than mine. (See my BYC page)

    Certainly, as long as it suits your needs.

    Thanks for your help! I thought it would be easier than trying to build one and easier to clean![​IMG]

    I plan on getting the 10 x 8 one with skylights from Sam's Club for meat birds very soon for under $1000. How has yours worked out? I just seems so ideal and is way cheaper than building one. Been there before to the tune of $2000...yikes.
