    My grandpa and I are going to build a coop and run. We are building it next to a shed. He said we can use one of the outside walls of the shed as a wall in the chcicken coop. Is that a good idea or not?

    sounds fine to me. mine is built on the end of a shed but doesn't use the shed wall. i wanted to be able to move the coop if i had to. have fun working with your Grandfather.

    Hmmmmm...I don't see a problem with it. In fact, now that I'm thinking about it... you'll save a bit of money on wood and nails and siding. The biggest problem would be the roof, how to match it up. I say, "Go for it!" and be sure to post pictures![​IMG]
