i was thinking having a shed with a run attached would work really well. im not very handy so something pre made would be stellar. I have 2 RIR hens, 2 Black Austrolorps, and 5 Araucanas.

There are pre-made chicken coops on sites like MyPetChicken and RandallBurkey. A shed could work, if the base is solid and predator-proof.

Hi! We just finished (well, almost...) our coop made from a shed and love it! There is so much room inside, and it was relatively easy to retrofit to make it into a coop. Here are some pics...

**ADDED PIC** This is what the shed looked like before we got it (hubby bartered for it
)


It's crazy what a difference paint and a new window made (and a few other small changes)


with the run added...


pic with the door to the run...

It's still a work in progress but we have an 8 x 10 shed we got off craigslist and have converted to a coop.

We are almost finished our coop converted from a metal shed (12x10). We made a wall going down the middle of the shed. Half of the wall is chicken wire and we are leaving one of the shed doors open so they have good ventilation. We also have four added ventilation areas in the coop. The run is attached to the outside like the ones already shown. This way we still have half of our shed for storage.
