    I repurposed playhouse into coop.
    Put your playhouse into your run and your chickens will have more places to hide when pecking order kicks into high gear. Also place roost devices into run for your chickens to just sit and chill out. I suggest natural tree limbs work well and look natural to your chickens. Also looks good to you looking at them in nature. Place straw into playhouse floor. (ground) and they may desire to lay their eggs there.
    Chickens like to lay eggs in privacy if possible just like us humans like privacy in certain actions.

    And ALSO YOU ARE STILL NEW HERE, [​IMG]
