    Hello everyone,

    Our el cheapo 22 foot Airstream is almost finished. The 28 little chicklets are already digging it immensely. Heading out this morning here in Elk Point, South Dakota, to put up the fencing and build the ramp.
    We will have some photos soon. This is recycling at it's finest.

    Cheers,

    Gypsea and Queen of the Forest

    we too are using a camper as a coop, and our girls have been fine it, even when temps hit over 100 and we lost some in our dog house coops the camper girls did fine! I think its all the windows for cross ventilation that keeps it cooler than you would think and it has a top vent, and DH built a hardware cloth screen door for ours!

    I am in LOVE with this coop! What a unique idea! It's so adorable! It makes me wish we had a camper not being used. :)

    if you mean me, the inside isnt done yet as our girls are still young, we just totally gutted it, put in a ton of shavings and layered with DE, we are constructing a roost but its not quite done yet! lol


    I would LOVE an airstream, DH and I want one of those for camping!!

    The reason this camper was used for a coop and not camping is it was beyond repair for travel!​
