    I went to town today to a place that sells some really nice sheds. I think Im going to get one for my chickens! I can have it special ordered with an extra door, openings all around the top for ventilation (covered with hardware cloth, of course). Im having it built without the flooring, so it will set directly on the ground. I was going to have it 8 x 10, but I think Ill go 8 x 12 or even 8 x 14. I even placed an order today for chicks from Murray McMurray to be delivered Feb. 2. I am really excited! Ill take some pics when I finally order and have it delivered.
