So I currently have 4 Silkies, about to be 3 because my roo is WAY to noisy for our neighbors. I have a pre-fab coop which so far has worked ok but I would love to be able to stand up and clean it, instead of having to bend all sorts of ways. My DH is not handy and I am a teacher, so we don't have oodles of money to spend on a new coop. However... I have this little potting shed in my backyard. I'm trying to visualize how I would go about coopifying it. Any thoughts? Pictured is my current coop and then our little shed. It is about 7 feet tall, with a footprint of 7x5. It has a plywood floor. Is this too big for just a few chickens?
