    Okay here is the progress on my coop. Keep in mine that this was my DH's tool shed that was packed wall to wall floor to ceiling with his stuff. I swore I would never go through it, this is all stuff from before we got together, but then he said that I could have chickens I just had to clean out the shed to keep them in. Boy that was only the beginning. We cleaned it out, then ran power to it, now we are getting ready to move it about 100 ft to another part of our property, that way the kids have their own yard and the chickens have their own yard! But anyways here are some picture of our coop in progress, keep in mind we still need nesting boxes among many other things!

    Excuse the outside mess, I am working on getting it all picked up.

    That islooking great. They have so much room and will be happy in there. Sorry you had to clean out DH's shed...I would break down and cry if I had to clean my DH's. [​IMG]

    Looking good! Most say 4sq ft. per large fowl-in the coop--10sq ft in the run!. I am allowing 5 for mine because I want them to be comfy in the coop when it's cold and nasty outside.
