my upcycled playhouse chicken coops!

i found both of these playhouses on craigslist for free and got both solid bottom pallets for free. we spray-painted the outer, covered the floor with linoleum flooring, secured the houses to the pallets with "L" bracketts, caulked up any spaces that would leak or allow a draft, inserted 2 roosts, covered the windows with chicken wire and cut out part of the door for the ramp. total cost for each was around $30.00!

Hi there op! I love your coops!

How many chickens do you have between the two coops?

 

Not to hi-jack your thread but we're considering using a play house we already have as a coop.

I'd originally wanted to do DLM with no floor but am wondering about making the bottom of the coop play house safe from predators. I thought maybe some hardware cloth on the bottom and stretched out a foot or so around all sides but wonder if that's feasible.

 

Any thoughts on this are most appreciated.

Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?
