I know what you mean! My 4 hens that are outside now that we got a few weeks ago are in a coop made from a refurbished box stand! Lol! My husband is an avid hunter and we had it on hand on our property. He is getting stuff together to build another coop because we have 8 pullet chicks and 2 roo chicks that will need a coop lol! How old are your chicks? I'm still not quite sure how we are going to transition them to outside and other hens when the time comes. Not sure if just need to have their coop ready and just put them in there for a week or so, so they will know that's home and then make then a small temp run so they can just see the others for awhile. I'm just not sure what to do??
