Here's the problem: I built a very simple 4x8 coop for my (now) 14 hens. No problems. We like to raise batches of 20-30 meaties a couple times a year. I have several small coops for the meaties, but a devasting coyote attack exposed the weakness with them, so ...... The wife would like to build a larger (10x10 or 12x12) outbuilding for the meaties that doubles as a coop and shed to store all of the chicken-related tools, food, bedding etc. in one place. It will probably have to be a kit shed or the like, because I am only passable with the power tools - the current coop is okay, but nothing to brag about. For the amount of money invested, I would prefer something a little more professional. I'm trying to mentally subdivide the space up and to think about the possibilites. Does this make sense or are we going down the wrong path? tips, suggestions, and advice are much appreciated....thanks.
