    Here is the progress so far as of yesterday on my shed to coop construction. The interior is going to be split into two sides, with each side having their own run on the outside. I love my chicks but I can't wait to get them OUT of my house!
    Can't seem to get the pics to post.

    This is beautiful! What are the dimensions? I'm hoping to do the same after I figure out which brand of shed to get...
    Keep up the good work!

    The shed is 10x16 and I left four feet in the front to be able store feed and supplies. The run is 12x16. It's raining right now so we are at a stand still. Here are a few more progress pics:

    The run will have a sloped tin roof on it.

    It's almost done! I am very pleased with how it has turned out, and so are my chickens.

    There are two doors, in the future I will split it into two coops, left and right side.

    Chicken door. Still need to add a ramp for them.

    I ran out of wood (and money!) so this make-shift roost will have to do until next payday.

    Very nice! Like the split coops. Will you then build another run off the other side? I wish I had that hydraulic truck bed!

    Do you plan to split the coop in two to raise two breeds of chickens, to separate newly hatched chicks, or some other reason?

    That is a very nice coop and run. Those chickens should start paying rent. :)
