Hello, I am new to this board and just wanted to introduce myself and my girls and their home. I have a small backyard in with a small side space next to the house. The previous owner had a dog and left this old doghouse in the side area of the house. I turned it into a playhouse for my daughters but they were never really interested, so I converted into a small coop and got some hearty layers instead. I used plywood that I had laying around and old materials. It was all done for a few bucks and it works fine for our 6 girls (two New Hampshires, one RIR, one Black Cochin, one Americauna, one Silkie). Its not the Taj Mahal, but the hens are very happy. Any suggestions or ideas would be welcome. Thanks!
