My Easter HAL chicks desperately needed a new home, so my husband suggested we convert our shed (which, of course, was full of junk) to a coop and build a run. Seeing that we are less than handy, I researched and drew a pic of what I wanted and it has been almost finished while we were out of town. These are the pics so far: The bottom 2 feet are hardware cloth, the rest of the walls and the top are chicken wire. He's still got to line the floor with hardware cloth. I planned on him covering the roof with some metal roofing panels we already have, but am kind of undecided. Other suggestions? Obviously I still have some stuff to get out of the shed before the new tenants move in! The shed has two vents opposite each other up under the highest point of the roof. For more ventilation I thought I'd add a small window (just a hole w/screen we already have) opposite the real window on the front. Something I haven't figured out is how to keep the girls from roosting on all the support beams running across the roof. I really want to put up a roost and poop board, but these beams are higher and more inconvenient, so I'm sure the ladies would go for them, lol. What would work? Also I'm going to rig up a pulley so I can open the little door from the outside. Any other suggestions on how to do the inside?
