Finally got my hands on a nice Australorp rooster and while he is in quarantine at my dad's I am making a new home for him. So far everything except for the nails and screws are re-purposed. I took a 55 gallon barrel that was originally used at a car wash for soap that I re-purposed many moons ago into a doghouse that was then converted to a compost bin and has now been made into the rooster house.

Almost original 55 gal barrel

Cut off a bit of the bottom

Took out a little in the middle and cut an opening for a door

Made a platform to raise it off the ground

I usually don't post much but do lurk quiet a bit, but I decided this may be worthy of posting

I LOVE LOVE LOVE your coop. I have all these extra sticks/little trees piled up in the woods behind the big shed... and was almost tempted attach them to my coop and do a faux log cabin... but i worried about termites... then though, heck the chickens will eat them, then thought, heck, to much work! LOL
