My wife is giving up her 8x12 garden shed so I can expand our existing flock of 8 chickens. Currently they are housed in a coop made from a wooden pallet, and a 10x10 dog lot for a run. I work a full time job during the day, so the build will take a few weeks. I will keep adding pictures as I go. I am more mechanically inclined, so my wood working skills are not the best. If anyone has a question, or helpful info, please let me know. The top drawing is what I plan on doing. I have purchased another panel for the dog lot, which will be opened up and butted up against the shed. The current run is not attached. The bottom drawing is the plans for the inside of the new coop. A ramp will be in front of the nesting boxes that will lead up to the poop box, perch's and boxes. Drawing of the poop board and perch's. You are probable thinking, that is one big poop board, but I have Rhode Island Reds and plan on adding more. I am looking at having 16 total birds before I will have to go to a bigger space, but 16 is enough for my wife and I. Nest boxes. The top is going to be angled and hinged, so all I have to do is pick up the top to collect the eggs. The separation wall between the storage area and nesting area. Inside of the shed and load of wood from Lowes.
