UPDATED WITH PHOTOS: Hi! I'm new here. I'm planning on getting some chickens this spring and want to get their new home ready. There is a small cabin on my property that I was thinking of using as their coop. It would require some adjustments - I'll still need to predator-proof, build a run, add some access doors, nesting boxes, and places for them to roost - but it has the advantage of already being built, and in the location on the property where I'd like to keep the chickens. However, it has more space than we really need for the chickens, and if we ever had the money to refurbish it would make a lovely guest cottage. I am not sure that if I give it over to chickens, I can ever get it back for human use. I'll update with some photos later, but what do you think? Worth a shot, or should I just save the cabin for another use and build a coop from scratch? Thank you! ETA: We've cleared out the brush from around the cabin, and removed the carpet and furniture. It has a screened porch on the front (first photo). It also has a small, non-operational bathroom and the main room in the cabin has a kitchenette.
