    I think it would work fine for a little extra shelter durning the day, but I wouldn't use it for my coop. I would worry about it not being predator proof enough and it would be awfully cold in the winter months.

    Yea those plastic play houses get very cold.

    Plus they are very light and would be easy for a dog/wolf or something to move.
