    My Coop: Green House Turned Chicken House

    I had this old fiber glass greenhouse that i decided to turn into my chicken house instead of buying or building one (I mean free is always better right?).

It can block and reflect most of the infrared (heat energy) inside the greenhouse to radiate outside the shed, so as to play the role...

    Very Low Cost But Tons of Work: Recycled Coop

    UPDATES: As of 2017, my town allows up to 6 chickens per acre. I have scooted the coop over to where the wire run used to be, because my air flow works better in the Summer and Winter. I have wire covered/enclosed another maybe 15' X 32' area on both sides of the greenhouse so the hens can...
