    Hi all, my wife and I converted an existing shed into a coop using recycled materials. My wife gets chicken wire for free from work and I already had a bunch of fence post for the run so all we really had to pay for was the paint! Tell us what you think!

    Nmarine, that's an awesome coop! Perfect for hot weather yet with enough shelter for rain. I'd like to do something similar for my next coop! Ours is made from recycled materials also.All we bought were wheels, some bolts and hardware cloth to keep predators out.

    6chicks&aduck I like that you have the driftwood for them to play on and it makes good decoration, I'm thinking of trying to find something similar!
