Hi everybody! Just found this site a month ago and have learned a lot already. I am in the process of converting an old shed into a coop. I don't have chickens yet but wanting to get it all set up before I do. Thinking of starting with 8 or 10 laying hens. Made some nesting boxes, ramps and doors. Also have a big run layed out, 12x20x18x20. I have the t posts in already and will put the 48" chicken wire on this week. Still a lot to do inside. Make roosting rods and frame in coop since I wont be using the whole 8x12 barn. I'll use the extra space for storage. I plan on covering the whole run with wire or netting of some sort to keep the blood thirsty critters out. It will be a learning curve but what the heck, go for it! I'm a big gardener to so the fertilizer will come in handy.
