Building a new 9x9 Hen house and I didnt know if there are any cons about using sheet metal to use as the skin on it. Thanks for the help.

It gets hot in the summer, freezing in the winter, noisy in a rain storm or when they all sing at the same time... Unless you are planning on fully insulating the coop, I wouldn't.

I have tin for my roof. My walls are hardware cloth. I live in Texas, so mine is built for cooling. I just put up plastic in winter for wind block. It's cooler inside the barn/coop in the summer than outside.
