    Can't see the picture - you need to upload it to Photobucket or another hosting site first.

    There are lots of converted playhouse chicken coops around!!!

    One of my chicken shelters is a recycled kids PLASTIC playhouse... you can make a chicken coop out of most anything if you put your mind to it!

    Check out the coops page for great ideas and have fun!

    It's beautiful!

    How big is it and how many chickens?

    I live near a lot of Amish people who sell playhouses and sheds like this. There's one I see that looks like a big boat and all I can think is "how cool would that be for the chickens to play on?" It's got all kinds of portholes and planks and nooks and crannies...

    I know, I'm weird...

    Anyway, it's sort of like this one, but without the swings and the slide:

    Of course, at almost $4,000 if I bought this for the chickens, I'd probably be living in it with them![​IMG]
