More Amazing Chicken Coops

This chicken coop below gave me the idea of simply modifying an out building. Mine doesn’t need to be this big, but Tuff Shed or comparable shed builders offer buildings in all different sizes. I priced a 6X8 shed with a window, built and painted for less than $1,000

These nest boxes affixed to the interior would be very nice to have, however, a shelf affixed to the wall with free standing next boxes will work fine.

This roost is perfect, the flat board will make scrapping the droppings a snap, and I really like the shelf below to aid in quick clean-ups.
Neither the nest boxes or roost would be difficult to attach to the interior walls of a shed, whether they are finished or not.  I like the dry wall in these pictures, but it’s merely a luxury…  and, an added expense.
It looks like the feeders have been hung below the shelf, another great idea to help minimize feed waste.

I like this chicken run, it looks like an easy build. Predator proof, but the wire mesh is not going to keep the wild birds from entering and consuming expensive chicken feed.
In the next photo I found a better choice of wire, and suitable hardware as a fastener.
