    Hi to all of you!

    I am new to the community!

    Well here is my question, hope to get suggestions on getting the coop started!
    if you can provide ideas on how to convert this space into a chicken coop to fit about 5 hens to 10 hens.

    Thank you very much!

    looks like it's move in ready.. this will be a 2 story coop/run combo.. :)

    use hardware cloth to wrap around the green (4x4?) it will be your run

    add in perches, nest boxes, a stair for them to go up and down, chicken swings, etc..

    it looks a bit rotted though..

    how old is this structure?

    maybe it's best to start from scratch.. if not presssure wash it to remove the old paint and put on new paint or waterproofing finish to provide additional protection against the sun and water
