    Behold, the Mighty Chicken Cube!

    This is basically a 4x4x4 Chicken Coop on stilts. I'd be happy to share the basic design for anyone who wants it.

    The window and trim were a spur of the moment addition, since I had an old vinyl window laying around that fit the opening.

    I think I would make the run 6 feet tall next time and add an automatic door opener/closer.

    I have 6 chickens in here now and 2 more on the way.

    NOTE TO BUILDERS: THESE THINGS ARE REALLY HEAVY. BUILD THEM CLOSER TO WHERE THEY GO AND NOT ON A DECK 2 FEET OFF THE GROUND!
