Help me figure out how to use these in a coop:

Inveterate scrounger that I am, I couldn't resist bringing a bunch of these home from the town scrap-metal pile. They're the doors to commercial front-load washing machines. Round, tempered glass windows two feet in diameter, set in stainless steel rings. I can always just haul them back, but I know that as soon as I do, I'll think of something I could have done with them and regret it.

Do you think they would look too goofy as windows? Maybe windows in doors? I've always wanted to build a sod-roofed coop (insulation in the winter, evaporative cooling in the summer), and maybe these would work as skylights. Anyone got any ideas?

Whatever you do with them in the coop, you will have *clean living* chickens

Use them as window or sky lights. The more light the hens get the better they will lay! I think they will look great. I like anything unusual!

My husband and I were just talking yesterday about putting skylights in the "next" coop. Those would work great if you could frame around them. What an awesome idea!!!

Windows, skylights, food bowls, dust bath 'bowl'! I think they are great! I wish I could find something so great at our dump...Dixie
