My husband has pretty much decided to sell the coop/run he made for me already to someone with a smaller flock, and make another one for us. He's going to make something more permanant... fencing in a large pasture area and putting a regular chicken house in it. What do you all think about this building at Lowes? http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=98483-25-LW108&detail=&lpage=none He would need to finish the inside of it, of course... putting in some roosts and nests and windows. I'd like him to make the nests so they hang out of the side a little with a lid I can lift from the top to get the eggs. He'd have to cut a hole in the side of the building for that, but that hole shouldn't be much different than cutting in windows I wouldn't think. Can you all think of anything else you would do to that building to make it coop-worthy?
