Cotton Trailer Coop - Please look!

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 

My sister and I have wanted chickens for about 3 years now.  Our deal was that we would build our coops at the same time.  I have always wanted a coop made from an old cotton trailer.  I finally found one so we both started building.  Mine is finally finished and she likes about a week on hers.

Ooooooooo!  Very cool!  Love the use of the cotton trailer.  I have to confess that they fascinate me too!

Great coop!  clap

Brilliant idea! Are you on some property where you can roll the wagon so the chickens can free range? I'm just thinking that you could use intensive grazing with that thing and it would be awesome!
