I just got a Rubbermaid 7x7 shed today to transform into a new wonderful home for my chicks! FREE!!!!! I've read through a few threads that I could find in the search's, but I'm sure I'm missing a few things still! I get the need for ventilation, this shed having two pre-installed sky lights may come into play also. I'm pretty good with my woodworking skills and completely confident in making them a entry point that can be secured and possibly adding a window. I should be picking up a set of nesting boxes for next to nothing this weekend, and have plenty of timers, light fixtures, heat lamps, etc. left over from all of my reptile cages I owned pre-wedding. this will be surrounded by a (about) 10x20 dog kennel (Great Pyrenees passed away a few months back ) that I plan to cover over the top with hog panels. Ohh... Where the shed will be placed is EXTREMELY shaded by overhanging "trees" (not sure what to call them, but they shaded our dog really well all the time)! I guess what I want to know is if anyone has any good build suggestions or would like to share info that would help me in this process!?!?
