    I saw this advertised on freecycle and we just went and picked it up- it wouldn't fit in our van so we borrowed a friend's pickup truck!It was used for 2 St Bernards-I feel bad for them though- I don't like to see dogs having to live outdoors. Its dirty and needs a little TLC, but it'll be great for my new pen we're working on. It'll be for a few chickens or geese...not sure yet.

    I'm excited to make it nice for my birds!
    PS we just have to finish the pen now! I tend to move faster than my DH...at least my mind does!
  2. I am envious of that.
    I love freecycle. I check out a few of the local one around me and get a few things here and there, but I have yet to get something like that...
    I would love to get a dog/bird house like that...

    Nice! Lucky birds!!
    We just scored a dog house a few weeks ago that we'll use for our two ducks. Our current coop is another Freecycle dog house. All the windows going in our new coop are from Freecycle! Love it!!! And love the chimney. Cute touch!

    That is super cute! I love freecycle! I get rid of a lot of "junk" through them.

    Thanks all-I love it too
    Fluffnstuffs- do you have any idea for a paint job? I have no imagination when it comes to things like that. But I'll look online for chicken/duck ideas and see if I can think of something like that too
    If you have any ideas though-don't hesitate to pass them my way. I do want to make it adorable for the birds.
