What is the strangest thing you have used or renovated to make a chicken coop? I want to hear some ideas and see some photos. I need to build Coop #3 and am on a tight budget. My first chicken coop is actually an old shed which my kids used for a playhouse. With a little work, paint, and imagination, it turned into an awesome chicken coop. My second coop though was a bit more challenging. It was actually an outhouse!! I needed a coop for my pair of buff silkies. The Outhouse was actually a lot of fun to work with and is now a two story residence with a nice window, lights, and partially insulated. I'm constantly making changes to it to make it more efficient as a chicken house. I'll post a photo as soon as I get home So... let me hear and see some of your ideas and creations!
