Hello all, We are cleaning up and fixing up a chicken coop on our farm. It has not housed chickens in over a decade. If anyone has advice or suggestions to share on setup that would be great. Kind of like what would you do with it, since you all have way more knowledge about chickens then I do. We are fixing it up now and getting chickens probably early spring. I'll post some pictures first then share what I know about it. Ok so for details: Exterior: Roof we are adding tin right now Siding- it was built 30-40 years ago with old barn wood and then covered with blue wood siding. Most of the blue wood siding has been removed by cows scratching up against it. We are either going to strip off the wood siding and paint it, or add new tin siding. Insulation- it was insulated when built, all four walls and roof. Windows- most will have to be replaced as they are broken, or in bad shape. Electrical - it has been run when originally built. Pretty sure it isn't live anymore, didn't feel like being the test dummy. Run- there is no run, and for now we plan to leave it that way. We will try free range and unless that becomes a problem we will leave it that way. Interior: Cement floors- need a real good cleaning, what should we cover the floor with? Walls- need to good scrubbing and a fresh coat of paint. Nesting boxes- seem to still be in good condition. Roosts- there are none, this is one area that we are researching. I like the Poop shelf idea for now. Feeders- we have some metal ones that still look good and usable. Water- again have some older metal ones that still look in good condition. There is also a well in there but the handle is rusted closed so I don't know if it's any good. Okay I think I covered a lot but probably left out some details. What would you do with this precious old building to make it a perfect chicken home? Thanks in advance for your opinions and suggestions.
