We are in the process of building a new coop that is (I hate to say it) big enough for a two car garage. It has a peaked metal roof and half of it will be house/coop and half will be covered run. As it is being built I realized I could've had the garage that I always wanted but never could justify the cost to build one, but somehow I rationalized the cost to build a huge coop large enough for 50 birds. (I plan to supply my children, grandkids and friends with eggs and maybe sell a few to others). I told my DH that cost is not too much of an issue because I wanted it to be nice and look like the other barns on our farm so for once things will be pretty and uniform. What would you do??? Am I crazy to do this for my birds but not our vehicles that are sitting out in the weather day in and day out? Help me with my rationales please.
