Here is my story and I'm sure it's a bit familiar. My flock grew quicker then I planned for it to. I have 17 chickens: 11 standards and 6 bantams, of which 4 are roosters!! Yes, I have 4 roosters running around. I have a 4'x6' chicken coop that we bought and a much smaller one we made. The lil coop will have to be shut down for the winter. It's not big enough or winterized at all. There is no way I can force 4 roosters to behave in one coop all winter nor can I force 17 chickens to behave in one coop. So, I need another coop. I don't want to buy another one. Costs too darn much. I'd have my husband build me one but he's in the military and I'm lucky if he is home 25% of the year. I'm no good at all building stuff. So I need some ideas on what to use as a coop. I'm trolling CL big time but this coop needs to be in place before it starts getting cold. I was thinking a metal shed but how can I get some light inside. I can't put windows in it. I was even thinking of maybe a plastic/Rubbermaid shed. Anyone using these for sheds???? Any other ideas??? I plan to put it on a platform since I don't want it to take up run space and the space underneath would be good for shade. Help please!!!!!
