    apple bins sound like a great idea! make sure to post photos if you do create a brooder/coop. i'd love to see them.

    Maybe you could flip one upside down and stack it... make a mini-coop or XL 'tractor'.... [​IMG] Good idea. Wish I had some!

  4. Quote:That might work...except it would probably make it too heavy to move. Those bins weigh well more than 100lbs on their own...

    Hey equibling, I noticed you're from Pleasant Valley Wa. I grew up on a Pleasant Valley Rd about 70 miles north of Spokane. Is that anywhere near you? Colville area? Just curious! I loved that place and miss it so I had to ask.

    Good luck with the apple bin tractors. Good idea!

    I am in NC. Are there places around here you can actually find these or buy them cheap?

    This is a pretty old thread. I'm interested if anyone was successful in making one of these into a coop, how it worked out, and if anyone has suggestions on sources.
