    How many people here have turned an old Barn stall into a coop?

    Do you have pictures?

    I am thinking of turning the corner of my garage into a coop, sort of in the style people turn a old horse stall into a coop.

    So I am looking for ideas and pictures to help me out. Thank you!

    I don't have pics yet...but I turned my back barn stall into a coop. The back of the stall has perching branches. The other corners have bins for the hens to lay, feed, water... and so forth. It was great that it was there for us when we moved in and we didn't have to build our own coop!

    Just remember to keep it protected from predators as they like to dig in - we just boarded up all holes. Chickens seem to love it!!

    I did it at my old place as well. As the one poster mentioned barns generally are not built to keep out coons and possums so it will have to be built to protect against those chicken thieving varmits.
