    I am thinking about chickens and would love to have quite a few. I really am just learning and would love to understand the space issues before I get a coop. I was looking at sheds and wondered if anyone had ever put in a second story to increase the square footage in their sheds. Would this work or would you just have all the ladies going to the highest floor? I thought that you could get a tall shed and put two floors in it and double the square footage. Any thoughts?

    I have considered a "loft apartment" for my little rooster who prefers to sleep alone. My coop is already divided in two sides. The issue I am having is how to keep him from flying down into my #roo's territory (run). [​IMG] It should work better for hens that get along well but they would have to be able to fly well like my little roo. Larger hens could be injured if they fly down from higher roosts. Unless they would walk down the ramp (which mine will not do).

    That sounded a lot like rambling. [​IMG]
