    Welcome to Backyard Chickens. Your other coop would be great used for quarantine area for new birds, or brood hen,or grow out coop for young birds etc.

    It would be a great idea to check out the predator threads to get advice on keeping them away from your birds.

    That's a huge improvement! I did a shed to coop conversion this spring and it was the best thing I could have done for me and my flock.
