The Dog House Chicken Coop
I’ve wanted to get chickens for a while now and my wonderful wife got me six baby Araucana chicks for my birthday. So now I had to figure out a way to house them once they were grown, and not go broke in the process.
I decided to take my dogs old dog house that she never uses and convert it to a chicken coop. I cut the sides and back out.
Obviously the dog house by itself would be a little small for the six baby chicks so I made nesting boxes for the sides and back. Essentially double the square footage in the coop.
I made the nesting boxes with a hinged roof so I can gather eggs and clean the coop.
On the inside I’m using a old closet rod for a perch in the new coop.
I then attached the sides and back.
After all this I painted it red.
I still need to finalize the foundation.
So this is it. Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.
