I going to convert a shed into a chicken coop..... I am trying to cheat and instead of making my own mistakes learn from other peoples ! Does anyone have any tips or advice to make things easier? Like cleaning feeding gathering eggs etc? I am going to make them a predator proof run but they will be out of the run most of the time in the yard. Also right now I have 7 Ameraucana I am looking for a new breed to go with them...Egg laying is the most important aspect BUT would like the new birds to double as meat birds. ANY recommendations?
