    This is a metal thing my dad has behind the house that he was storing fire wood on, but now he has a pellet stove, so its just become a place for hornets to build nests. I want to make this into my next chicken coop. Obviously i would have to cover the sides with wood and all, but what else could i do to make it easy to access for eggs and cleaning and make it comfortable and safe for the chickens? Its about 5.5 feet tall from the ground to the highest point of the roof, and over 6 feet long and about 2.5 to 3 feet wide.
