After seeing the "eglu" on the Omlet website. http://www.henspa.com/Eglu/eglu.htm I was thinking... I have an igloo style dog house that my dog has never used. It is really big, bigger than the "eglu." Here is a link to a photo of it http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=productDetail&productId=35067-73671-25934&lpage=none I wonder if I could somehow modify the dog house to be a chicken coop? I like the idea of being able to take the house apart and clean it. I would cut a opening in the side to get the eggs from a interior nesting box. I think it is tall enogh for a roosting perch to be attached inside of it in some way.... What do you think? Any ideas on how to cut the opening? What kind of saw would work and how big to make it, and what type of hinges? I have a friend that has offered to give me an old chicken "run" made of welded wire. all enclosed. I was thinking I could make a sort of "tractor" using the old dog house and the old chicken run.... See, then the cost factor is pretty low on my "start up" on having chickens. My husband is just not willing to spent the $2500. 00 or more right now for the type of coop I want. Let me know if you guys think that is a reasonable idea.
