    Got started this morning remodeling the chicken coop. Its only 8x8 but I figure it will hold a few birds. I have started on 4 2x7' 4" cages on the right and not sure what I'm going to do on the left. Should have room for a 4 stack brooder in the back center.

    Here is before pics

    Ted,
    Looking good!

    Now the big baby in me who doesn't deal well with cold, is wondering how on earth you do it this time of year! Please tell me you have a space heater out there while you work. lol...
     
  8. I like it. Pack em in there so you can tell me how many you fit. I am thinking of committing an entire outbuilding like this this summer.

    Quote:It was a chicken coop. Its becoming a quail coop. I have it fixed up for the eggs to roll out, It will have 4 levels per side. In the back will be a 4 level brooder, There will be 132 square ft of pen space not counting the brooder. When that is finished I will hang cages double stacked on the outside on both sides and on the back.
