    Other than it getting too hot in the summer, I would certainly think it would be do-able. I would put hardware cloth over the open windows in the summer and in the winter keep a few cracked for ventilation. As long as they can go outside every day it would be okay for sleeping quarters. Thick shavings on top with linoleum or rubber mats underneath for easy cleaning. open the back door and shovel out the inside. Can't be worse than my shed with the small doors.
    I'm sure there will things to work through but I have seen worse designs than a bus.
    Good luck![​IMG]

    That is a great idea! My dad uses a bus for his goat milking area. If the bus is on the ground and doesn't have a motor the chickens can come and go through the hole in the front.
