    Hi! Everyone.....
    We have enjoyed our 4 girls so much we have decided to add a few more to our flock. We are going to turn part of our shed into the coop. We were wondering if anyone has any pics or ideas they could share with us. We have some ideas but i like to see what others have done also. Thanks for all your help!!

    How big is your shed? Is it a baby barn?

    Our coop is the top portion of a 2 story building thing that was already on the property when we bought it. It has a large garage and 2 smaller storage rooms on the bottom and on the top it is one big open space 18x20 ft...so I made a really long ramp and the top part is our coop. We are getting ready to build another smaller 8x8 coop for our meat birds, because I don't really want them in the main coop making everything gross...
    Then again I started feeding all the chickens a higher protein food, so they smell a little rough anyway.
