    Good to be here. We have 6 Hens and 1 rooster. Currently converting a 12x10 storage shed into a functional chicken house.
    Our goal is to end up with 12 laying hens.
    Thanks

    G’Day from down under p12chickens [​IMG] Welcome!

    Out of interest, I typed ‘converting shed to coop’ in the search option and came up with way more threads that I thought there would be so if you have not already done that and are looking for some ideas, might be worth a try.

    Best of luck with the conversion.

    I hope you enjoy BYC. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    Thanks everyone,
    Coop conversion nearly complete, just some painting on the exterior left.
    It went well, cost a bit more than I expected but overall we are happy with it. Ill post some pics soon.
    We have 3 Turkins, 3 others that I cant tell you what the breed is, my Wife knows though, and also 11 straight run Black Astrolorp chicks. Oh - and one Rooster in denial.
    And a 3 month old Great Pyranees pup.
    Great people here on the BYC and good info too !
