    I have an old little shed that I used for my ducks its 2x6 and about 3 feet tall I know its small but I dont want to build a chicken coop if I dont have to Im getting 3 black sex link chickens and 2 araucanas. I am going to build a nest box on the outside so the eggs are easy toget will the little shed work or will I have to make/buy one?

    Don't know were you from but in the winter it might be a problem. 5 standard size hens might be a bit much.
