    So after a few years without chickens in my life I decided it was time to get back into the chicken business and show my 6 and 8 year old boys a little about self sufficiency. I had to decided what to make the coop out of when inspiration struck like lighting. I present the Swing Set Chicken Coop....enjoy!

    Before (Dont worry the boys have a new treehouse to play in)
    Remove the swings...
    Add some supports and get ready to add the chicken wire
    Build a gate and no chicken coop is complete without a window
    find some scrap wood and fill in the gaps and add a second roof and some nesting boxes for easy access
    Now all we need is some fresh paint
    Not to shabby....spent about $100 for chicken wire, paint and box of screws.
    now all we need are some chickens...
    Welcome home ladies....
    Worth every penny and all the hard work and sweat building it!

    Great upcycled project, I love swing set coops! I wish there were more close up pictures and that it was more predator proof, but definitely one of the prettier ones I've seen. I like that you added a window.

    I have an old swing set that we have never used. This definitely gave us some inspiration to make it into a little run!

    LOVE this idea! How do you access the interior of the coop for daily cleaning/tidying, and then how for a less frequent thorough cleaning?
