im wanting to build a cheap and easy little coop any ideas pics ect?
Do you have a shed on your property?
yes a little 2ft wide by 5 ft long 6ft long little shed
Quote:I used a little portion of the shed for the coop and then cut a hole for them to come out. It's just a suggestion.
Here's my cheap coop.
I used an old Rubbermaid shed and put in some old sawhorses for perches. We cut a window and put grating over it for airflow.
Chickens really aren't too picky about looks, thankfully!
any coops that u can find stuff around the house to make?
The owner of a lull's Farms that I know has lots of chickens and a roo and she uses a bunch of rabbit hutches! You might be able to find one on craigslist.com
Quote:I've even seen someone use a EXTRA LARGE dog house and then build the coop around it. But I guess it really depends on how many chickens you are thinking of having.
There are plenty of people that have dog houses hanging around in there yards not being used at all!
