Hi. We have 3 roosters & 4 hens. I have to admit they are pets more than anything. Anyway - we moved and the people who bought our house wanted to keep some of our flock & our coop (which was just an old shed), so they have been living "free-range" (and in the doghouse - she's thrilled) all summer. Fall is coming on and I know we need to do something for them, but I never realized how $$ chicken coops are! Unfortunately, we can't find a used shed like we had before & don't have a lot of time to build (we are both capable, but we also both work 2 jobs & have kids...) ANYWAY - any ideas?!?!? They have always been free outside all day (even in the winters) and just in the coop to lay (when they aren't laying in the woods) and at night. I'd appreciate any advice (I am the novice - my husband has done this before). Thanks!
