Found this site and thought I'd share. Took me 5 years to finally get chickens. I own a business building backyard sheds, and got this old barn from a lady that wanted a bigger one. It was originally built by my company, and was in great condition inside. I added a window in back, and a little coop door. I added the 4 nest boxes on each side, and a new door. We can just lift up the lid to get at the eggs. The kids wanted to paint them so we let them have at it. I purchased some year old chickens after vigilantly checking Craigslist and brought them to their new home; 2 buff's, and 2 wyandotte's. 4 hens + 24 hours = 2 eggs My daughter now considers herself a farmgirl! My daughter thought up the idea for the star. She now call our place Big Star Ranch. I have more people who want eggs that these four will give me. I can see how it's easy to get more chickens. A new coop would be a VERY fun project, and easy for me.
