Making a car into a coop

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Has anyone turned an old car into a small coop? I dont need nesting boxes and all that just something to hold my chicks in since i dont have much room inside. We have a car my husband used for parts in the yard and he said he would make it into a brooder/coop for me. Any suggestions?

Not enough room. .

What kind of car, how many birds, and what kind (standard or bantam)?

 

Some downsides would be proper ventilation without compromising security, and having it be easy to clean.

Japanese, OEG, Sebright, Brahmn, d'Uccle, and EE bantams; and RIR, BR, and EEs, Golden Penciled Hamburg, EEs, Anconas, Bielefelders, Wheaten Marans, Speckled Sussex, and a surprise variety of bantams with breeds tbd!

 

16 guineas and 2 turkeys to round out the flock

 

Another victim of poultry math. Aiming for a "designer" flock and egg basket :)
