    Back in 2010 I took my kids old wooden swing set, and converted it into a chicken coop. For the most part I used recycled wood (I am not a conservationist just cheap) Over all the coop has worked out wonderfully. I have had the coop and chickens for almost 7 years now. I would like to know if anyone has pictures of other swing-set converted coops. I am interested in your design, and how you incorporated the original structure. If you have a converted coop, please reply with your pic's, and your thoughts about the process.

    Thanks

    I'm nether conservationist, or cheap, but a pragmatist. I like to repurpose thing.. ALL KIND OF THINGS .. Here is a pix of my summer coop,

    It is a lil tykes playhouse.

    I have followed a thread of someone that converted a swing set into coop. Trying to find it among 1600 posts would take a little while. If i have time I will seek it out.
