Coop de Crib...makeshift and perfectly functional =) Construction is from baby crib $0, scrap pieces of OSB & plywood from past jobs, scrap pieces of dimensional lumber from past jobs (DH's job comes in super handy for my projects) :D Chicken Wire $3 worth & awning fabric $0 (from my broken RV awning). Total cost ~ $3. This is the Coop de Crib. I don't know how well you can see but the back half of the crib was turned into the "house". The underneath is where the waterer & feeder is. Maybe...
Banty Coop...a la Maggie Mae & Baby Bonnie =) This coop is for my Japanese Bantams - Musashi & Saki...now to be joined by Ghandi (my 10 yr old daughter & hubby named them) Construction is from free pallets $0, HomeDepot cull wood 2 x $.51, some 1x's and 2x's from other projects $0, & 1/2" hardware cloth $15. The front half of the roof is light shade cloth from Sutherland's ~$3.00 and the back half is covered with $.51 worth of cull wood and left-over tar paper & shingles from another job....
I got all thse parts from my local Habitat for Humanity Restore...for less than $6 TOTAL. Mini-frig that I already have - $0. Have, but not pictured: 1/2" hardware cloth, tray for water/sponge. Still need: plexiglass & frame. What else do I need??? Transformer thing? That will...hopefully work...? Thermostat thing...that will also, hopefully, work. Pretty basic light base......
