Just wondering if anyone has ever done this. I have a large supply of used bricks, and rather than pouring a concrete floor, which I am not going to do, I thought maybe I would build the coop (or rather 8 x 8 shed), then lay a layer of used bricks on the floor. The roost, nest boxes, etc. would either be free-standing or attached to the side walls somehow. We live on a farm and have untold number of odds and ends of building materials scattered around between sheds, barns, etc. I'm new to chickens, and I thought a shed might be good, since if something happens to the birds, or life's circumstances change (DH and I are 60-ish), the shed could then be used for storage. Of course if I used the bricks, I would put a generous layer of pine shavings or clean straw over it. Any thoughts? btw...I plan on having an attached run.
