    Well into retirement I am planning to now come back to raising 25 chickens or so and the coop is the largest problem. I have looked at Home Depot and Lowes storage shed/buildings as the basis for a well protected building for my "girls" but find them a bit pricey and most are offered as built by them only. I am looking at an 80 square footer as the basic size plus covered range areas as we have hawks.

    Can anyone point me in a better direction or share experiences? Many thanks, Overbore
