Here is a sample of tools and things to keep handy in your barn or coop area:

shovels and rakes

net for catching chickens
garden pump for sprays
hoes and pitchforks
hammer, nail and saws
garden hoses
buckets 3 and 5 gallon
tool belt
6 mil painter plastic to cover windows/doors during heavy rain
wire cutters and pliers
zip ties for holding wire while securing it with stronger metal wire
tape measure
heavy duty garden cart with wheels or garbage cans

For a bigger job on your coop its a good idea to have a tool belt handy, this will save steps when making repairs.
