    This is a pretty recent coop that we got at the Habitat For Humanity store near us. We looked around and found this old TV cabinet that spun.
    We paid 7 bucks for it. It was there at the store since 1984. [​IMG]
    It had solid wood on all sides. So we took the wood off the sides and put a door on and some hardware cloth. We also put wheels on the bottom that we found in the garage.
    It is about 2x3 and we are hoping it will make a great little house for a Serama pair. Here are some pictures...

    It is kinda in rough condition as it is being sanded and prepped for a paint job [​IMG]

    The Door is opened in this one. The wood on the sides is so the shavings will stay in.

    And how can it be a chicken coop without an uhhh....chicken?? [​IMG]

    I have live-in "inspectors" too, but none of them are as good at playing chicken as is Henri!

    I've decided I wish all of my neighbors were BYC members, because of the cleverness and ingenuity y'all practice.

    Thank you! Henri loves to sport his little costumes. [​IMG]
    I also wish that my neighbors were BYCers. It would
    great to have some people that have have the
    same addiction as me!

    That's pretty darn clever! And handsome. Surely a Serama pair will find romance in this little love nest.
