Last night I posted a question about coop size since I was considering converting an old shed to a coop. This morning I was able to go out and take pictures and measurements so I could start planning what needs to be done. It was smaller than I thought it was but I feel like it's just the size I need it to be. I thought I would post here with some of my thoughts and ask some questions. The shed measures 4x8 and I will be housing 7 chickens. It has a concrete floor and even has cinderblocks and concrete along the base outside. Nothing is digging it's way in. The shed is metal but luckily it is underneath a huge tree that provides a lot of shade in the summer. There are gaps where the ridges don't meet the walls near the ceiling. I figured I would leave the gaps and just line it with hardware wire to help with ventilation. In the back wall I figured I would put a gable vent and another gable vent in the door. The door needs to be replaced and I'm thinking about adding a window to provide light and if it's screened allow more ventilation in the summer. The pop door would go in the wall on the left and perches on the right wall. I had considered putting the nesting boxes along the back wall near the bottom. Would the light from the window would bother them if the nesting boxes were on the back wall? How far away from the vents should the roosts be? Anything I'm missing? Oh FYI the wet look up by the ceiling is from the hundreds of wasp nests that use to line the rafters.
