Hubby and I got a free shed a bit ago and thought we'd use it to store our outdoor tools, etc. About a week ago we found a gentlemen that breeds very nice looking Barred Rocks and will sell us some in a couple months. We previous had Cuckoo Marans, but really wanted BRs. When this opportunity came up we realized we'll need more space for them (didn't realize how big they were compared to the Marans). We're only getting three, but want lots of room. The shed is one of these (8x8): It needs a wall replaced and the doors fixed (and locks added!). We're also adding a large window in the back and two small on either side of the doors. We're doing an outside nest box on one side and the other will have a poop board and roosts. We're going to chicken-wire off the inside, about a foot in, so when we don't want them out we can just open the main doors and they still get lots of air and light. There are no drafts, but I'm not sure where to put the ventilation - I was thinking above the big window in the back and above the doors?? For the floor I was thinking of linoleum for easy cleaning? And then using sand or shavings (we use shavings now) on top. I'll take pictures of the project as it goes and post here. Am I missing anything?
