    When I started my chicken journey a year ago I bought a coop on-line. Big mistake!!! Now my girls have enough space & a warmer coop with less drafts.

    I transformed our shed into a new coop. All I need now is to add a few windows, Decorations & it'll be done. I'll keep you updated!

    Took the old coop and added parts to the shed. While I was working in there they were jumping in and laying eggs.

    Best idea was getting the food off the ground, and making sure it was unmovable. No more tipping over the food!

    How exciting!! That looks great it feels good to give them a nice size home . I would definitely make a solid wall between nesting boxes though.... just saying mine get grumpy while in labour[​IMG]

    And I added a cabinet that has storage, cleaning supplies, treats, my chicken first aid kit, & bedding for the nesting boxes.

    Thanks I've been thinking of doing that. I added 3 new nesting boxes they've been using them all.
