I put up a post at Craigslist and Freecycle asking for a used shed, large doghouse, or anything that I could conver to a coop. I got a response and although it needs work I am super excited! I want to get busy on it now but a storm hit and it's too dark to work. . But I'll just work on the plans. I think it will be okay for 4 bantums and 1 standard till summer. Besides the obvious repairs, I'm going to raise it maybe 2 feet on stilts, make a larger window (on the south side) with a door to close in the window.. of course I need to cover any hole with wire and I also need to make a door. The roof was rotted and covered in heavy, broken shingles so I'm going to go get some coorigated plastic skylight stuff? I don't know what it's called but my mom said it's cheap and it's at the lumber yard. I don't have the tools to cut metal. Anyway, any advice would help... my grandmothers given me her two cents. Yay! OH! One question I was going to ask about waterers. I don't know what kind to get. Does anybody have a nipple waterer or one of those automatic waterers? The kind that hooks up to the hose? What do you think is the best one? They've outgrown their baby waterer..lol... have to refill it too much and they knock it over! Also, I need to get a large feeder so any advice on that will help.
