    I wanted chickens but didn't want to spend $100's of dollars on housing. I got creative and browsed CL. I found a heavy duty wood playhouse house for $40. A little paint and a free dog kennel later I have a home for 6 egg layers and 2 very cute silkies. All for under $50. I'm pretty proud of myself. [​IMG]

    The Chicken Coop Kit provides everything needed to care for small animals. It is self-contained to
    safely house two or three hens, rabbits, or guinea pigs. This fine wire mesh coop has a nest box to provide
    protection for animals and eggs. It is crafted from solid, finished Douglas fir with a waterproof composite
    roof and a nest box lift lid. The lids lift on the coop and nest box to allow easy access. A removable drop
    pan makes for easy cleanup. The starter kit is perfect for a small space.
