Good conversion CK,a few things i would have done differently though are i would have creosoted the whole of the inside and out, made the nestboxes a bit lower than the perches to discourage them from roosting in the boxes at night,if the perches are higher they,ll go for the higher option naturally for safety and put in a cross member in the centre of the shed so feeders and waterers could be hung at back level height to aid in keeping them cleaner. :-k

Fair comment about perches n creosote..feeder and waterer where temporary, the waterbutt outside is now the waterer with a ballcock in the white tub, works great, had one on tryal in my other pen,and have a20kg feeder on bricks inside now.
