DH called one of his customers that's a builder and he offered us all the scraps from the next two houses he's framing , my DH will probably do an 8x8 shed/coop for the chicks that is about 7 feet tall at the peak. Obviously the space above about 4 feet won't really be used, so is it feasible to build shelves and store things in the coop with the chickens? I think we would probably hang tarps from the top of the shelves over whatever we're storing just in case the chickens get curious. Also, I have 17 chicks. 15 are bantams and one of the others is a roo that we won't be keeping (and I'm assuming about 50% of the others will be roos as well which we won't keep). How much space does each banty need? I've tried searching and it didn't bring up much. An 8x8 would be plenty big enough even if they were all pullets, right?
