    Here is a shed I just bought for $650. delivered. It was delivered yesterday. Today my husband and a friend put in a floor and the pop door and a temporary roost for the chicks, who are 3 weeks old today. I put the brooder cage in and am keeping their water in the brooder so they don't scratch a lot of stuff in it and it will stay cleaner. I put the chicks in it this afternoon. At first they were hesitant to come out of the brooder, but after one ventured out it wasn't long before the others followed.

    Here is a picture of the shed

    Here are some pictures of the inside. Rain is forcasted for the next couple of days so I wanted to get them in. I put a 1"x2" roost in about 1' off the floor for them. They have been on and off it.

    Quote:I'm thinking about it. My DH said "I guess your going to want to get some more chickens. I think he was joking but maybe!
