Convert small buildings and sheds into chicken coops.

Small buildings and sheds are easy to convert. Could the back part of an old garage be transformed into a little coop with access to an outside run? Could you clean and modify an old shed on your property that’s being used for storage?

Is the structure in a good location on your property or in your garden? If not, can it be moved? Usually these structures have existing doors and windows that can be modified. Sometimes they even have electricity and plumbing in place, which may need only a little updating. Some may even include a dry room to store feed conveniently and organize your tools.
