    I have a couple of dressers around the house that will be donated and I was wondering if I could turn one of them into a coop? - any pics or ideas will be great!

    I only have 2 little silkies so they will not need much room inside the coop.

    The problem I have found with using furniture outside is- it won't stand up to weather... I had some ideas for table legs in my garden, which didn't work out!! If you are talking about taking apart the dressers and using the wood- and covering it with some kind of siding-maybe. Or if it will be placed under a covered area. I would put the dressers where you are thinking of using them and see what happens after a heavy rain. Maybe better to find some pallets...
