post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I'm building my coop on Tuesday and possibly getting chickens that same day. We had an old plastic play house in our yard and we are turning that into a chicken coop.  http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/raising-chickens-on-a-shoestring this is where i found the idea

there is an image of the coop on this page does any one have any creative ideas for a coop other than mine? i would love to see what you come up with.:weee

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

Hi and welcome to BYC. I'd suggest re-posting on the coops and runs forum for more responses. Good luck with your build.

If you click on the Coop tab, a lot of different coop designs will come up...different sizes, styles, various ways of building them, etc. It's fun to see how inventive people get with their coops and there are some great ideas there too.

 

Thanks for joining us!

Nothing wrong with cheap  BUT, it needs to be predator safe, draft free and have good ventilation. If you have weather extremes, it need to stand up to them also. :welcome
