    Got a metal shed for $25. We are goin to cement the floor and sit it on there. DOes the rain make them nuts when it hits the roof? It is under trees but still gets afternoon/evening sun.

    We had a metal shed for a coop for a few years down in Texas. Rain did not bother them, and as long as you have good ventilation, outside run access, and plenty of water, neither will the heat. We did have to run a heat lamp out there in the winter, though.

    Good luck, and post pics when you are done fixing it up. [​IMG]
