    Hello!!!

    I've been very curious about where those with people-sized walk in coops keep all of there chicken equipment. I want to build a 10x10 walk-in coop in the Spring and I am planning on having a 4x10 storage area inside. Just curious, what's your storage setup?
    Pictures appreciated [​IMG]

    My storage is two of those aluminum trash cans. One for layer feed, and the other for scratch. I keep them outside in my chicken run. The run has a roof on it. Anything else has to stay in the garage.

    Mine is not a walk in coop, but maybe these pics could spark some ideas for you.

    Quote:Our feed is kept in a separate building (a small barn) ..along with pine bedding, hay, horse feed and rabbit pellets. That's where we also keep all the garden tools, saddles and tack (when we had full sized equines). We also store most of the equipment we use for butchering in the barn (guns, knives and shears are kept in the house)
    Extra waterers, feeders and brooder equipment is kept on our enclosed back porch since we brood the babies in the house
    Incubators are kept in the office.

    Our coops are "Hoop Coops", so it's just the birds and their daily needs in the coops.

    The can holds the scratch. The broom is hung on a hook.

    The tote holds the pine bedding, hay, false eggs, misc.

    I also keep a shovel outside of the door.

    It's all cleverly kept in the coop, but out of the chickens curious sight [​IMG]
