Hi there! I am thinking about doing the same thing! I have purchased a playhouse that is 4‘ x 4‘ x 5‘ tall and it cost about $200 US. I figure I will have to put in another $200 US and then if I decide to put a automatic coop door opener then another couple hundred. I wanted a separate coop from my big girls to house some Polish that I have on order coming in August.I am looking for ideas for a small easy to build preferable cheap coop for 3-6 bantams, The space I have is 4ft by 4ft at maximum It can only be 3ft by 4ft if it is not walk in.
I am thinking of turning a plastic play house in to a coop what are the pros and cons of doing that?
