    Hi there!!!

    Today we are officially in escrow for our new home!! We currently have 7 hens in our backyard coop .... which we built from an old she'd (we built a large yard onto shed for them).

    The problem is ... it can't move with us. When we move, we'll need to move them right away with us. We can't leave them, spend time building a new coop, them move chickens.

    Should I buy a prefab coop and just add a yard for them? A new shed and add a yard?

    I have no idea what I should do. They will have to be housed against our fence ... so a run would be long and narrow. Help??

    I would buy a pre-built shed from Home Depot or Lowes and have it delivered day of move, be ready to put it together as a coop in a hurry.

    Good luck
