Playset/Swingset coops...please post pictures

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I am more interested in the swing and slide type playsets rather than A-frame swingsets that have been converted to coops.  We have one that has one swing...an overhang with a climbing rope...and three levels in additon to the slide(and it had the canvas tent over the top.  I have an idea about how I would like to turn it in to a breeding coop for our 4 Polish...but Id like to see other folks ideas.  I have some stuff on hand like green metal roofing and a vintage window...along with the fencing.  It will be close to our other coop which has a theme...so I would like for it not to detract.  Any photos would be helpful!  Thanks!

There is a playset coop in the Coop Pages, and I believe it's in the Medium Sized section.  They had a clubhouse on top- and built that into the coop itself and then got really creative with the rest of it.  It won an award over the summer.  I'll try to hunt down the link, but it's easy to find yourself.  wink

I did see that one.  It gave me an idea or two...but it is a little different configuration than mine. They did a really nice job on it.  Ours will be all self-contained with the run area actually within the original structure and the roost/nesting area above.  I was just hoping to see a few more.  Thanks for the response!

I honestly haven't seen any others like that.  You'll just have to get creative!  wink  Maybe someone else will chime in!
