So I've got a bad case of the winter blahs already and I've been trying to think about spring and next years garden to get my mind off the yucky weather. Our coop design is working out well, except we have a few too many roosters. None of which I want to let go. And they would really like to have their own individual spaces. So right now I have chickens on both sides of the coop, but if I'm going to reclaim one of those runs to plant my garden in like we intended I'm going to need a new place for the banties to live. So I'm thinking maybe we could convert the old corn crib. It's a mess at the moment and might take half the spring just to clean it up. But if we split it right down the middle I think we could have The Banty Shanty on the right, Turkey Town on the left and a central storage area. We would need to reface this wall, add some windows and doors. Each side has a small area already framed with a door that 150 years ago held corn cobs. I'm thinking they could fairly easily be converted into coops. Do you want to take a look inside? I figured you did. OK, follow me... If we can get all the junk out, reuse these old windows, lower the ceiling and add a little insulation it might work, yes? I'm thinking I could get a few pens just in this one side. Then on the far right side of the building, the open area, we can add fencing around the posts and make covered runs. We need to patch the metal roof though. Tree fell on it and poked a bunch of holes in it. The other side could serve as the Turkey Town run. Just add an open wall on the south end here, covered in wire with a door. That would still leave us plenty of room at the back of the barn for storage. So what do you think? Any brilliant suggestions or observations?
