    Okay there is someone in a town near by that is making outhouse looking buildings at a great price. I am thinking of having one as a coop. I live in a very old farm house in the middle of the city lol that with chicken will sure give them something to talk about (I am evil)
    When I was a kid we lived for a short time in Oklahoma and the was an old delauxe outhouse (as my dad called it) it was wide enough for 2 seats. Our chickens always layed and slept in there
    What do you all think

    I think it would be perfect with your farm house. I remember a double seater from a camping trip when I was a kid.
    Have fun with it as a coop! post pictures

    I would love to have an outhouse as a chicken coop. My mom also grew up using a 2 seater outhouse(with 10 siblings it was still a hassle to get in there).
    I think it would be very rustic looking and your birds would love having a house like that. I don't know messurements but I would just make sure it's large enough to house the birds you have now, plus extras. You know you can't have just one!!!hahaha

    I think that it is a great and clever idea. Is it going to be a 2 holer? And some folks might have more than a little trouble reaching in the hole to get eggs.

    I am going to call Monday to get a price with the mods I will need. Like the chicken door a roost and nest boxes I am also thinking of having it 3 feet wide and 2 feet deep would that be good for how many chickens?

    As long as they have a large enough run it would hold 3

    They are in lake odessa and the standard one they are showing for a garden shed is 85.00 I think that is a great price
