I'm Nick from Centerville Minnesota, I'm currently transforming my small wood shed into a coop where I plan to raise 8 broilers at a time. New to raising them and any advice would be helpful, from feeders/waterers to shelter and do's and don't I'm happily taking advice and tips. Thanks !

Hi Nick and welcome to BYC - thanks for joining us. I converted my garden shed into a coop. I just added some roosts, 6" of dried grass clippings and leaves on the floor and job was done. You may not even need roosts I guess as you are raising meat birds, but the members on the meat bird thread will be better placed to advise you.

Best wishes
Ct
