    I'm planning on transforming an old plastic playhouse into a chicken coop. My plan is to elevate it about a foot off the ground, add a floor and somehow attach their portable run. I will be putting hardware wire over the windows and using spray foam to insulate the walls. Does anyone have any advice for me before I start? Will this work?

    There were previous posts on this in this section. You could probably do a search for playhouse coop and find the threads. [​IMG]
