Sooo after years of asking, my husband has given me the green light to get chickens! So excited! I have been researching different coops out there for sale. The really good ones are quite a bit of money. The cheaper ones are too small or too cheaply made. I keep looking out my window at this nice shed we have in our backyard that is almost empty. It has electricity, windows, roof vents, cement floor, and even a motion sensor light on the outside. And get this, it has a doggy door that comes into the shed already cut out. That little door leads to a 10 by 10 outside cement pad that is also just sitting there with nothing to do. So I could convert half the shed to a coop and it would be a very nice coop. I also could build a run half on that outside cement pad and half on the dirt next to it so the chickens can do the scratch compost thing. Or I could build a coop on the cement slab and not ruin the shed. I keep going back and forth. Any thoughts would be soooo great!! Also,if anyone has any thoughts on how to clean a chicken pooped cement floor inside a shed that would be helpful too.
