Here's my second choice for the chicken coop!
I have this great shed in the back. There's not much in it and the lawn mower and snow blower, my son is taking. A great guy named Bruce does my lawn in the summer and my plowing in the winter and I like it like that!!
It would make a really big chicken house and I don't think I could contain my self to 3-4 hens!!
That's the only problem.
The shed would have to have windows cut into it though, for ventilation. It has none now.
And pens put out the sides. More work than the dog pen idea.
I could open the front doors and put screen doors in.
It already has a shelf in it that you could put nesting boxes on.
And has electricity. (Well, sort of. It's run under ground from the garage and isn't working at present. That would have to be dug up to find the problem I guess.)
All in all, I think I'm talking myself out of this as it would be a lot more expensive to pull off!!!
See, these pictures show what I was thinking of.
I think I'm obsessing!!!!!!!
