    Wow, that is really nice. Are you going to enclose the runs? What will be in the other two stalls, feed and tools?

    I am enclosing the 2 centers with a doorway betwwen them. They are 10ft deep by 8and 1/2 acroos by 8ft tall each. I am not sure as of yet what i am going to do with the other 2 stalls . We already have a nice tool shed with a leantoo that we keep the yard tractor in.

    I converted a shed, that was full of junk and stinky! Now its full of little fluffy butts enjoying the large open space coop!

    I think its easier to convert, but does take some thought and hard work.....

    Its very rewarding!
