    My Coop
    I plan on turning this old swing set into a coop and run. I was wondering if anyone had pics of a swingset coop that i look at for ideas. Basing my desing on a a-frame chicken tractor. Any tips or tricks was be apperciated.

    Does anyone have pics of coops that have been recycled from things like old sheds, truck campers, etc.

    dont have a pic of the before anymore, but you get the idea when you see the new pics

    Good idea, I have saw a couple on here in this section. You would have to go way back to find them though. Maybe the folks that built them will answer your post. Good luck with it.

    Finally got around to making the swingset coop. Was going to use it as a breeder pen, but its now a grow out pen for chicks. It will probly turn into a rooster pen until they're dinner, apparently i'm very good at hatching roos [​IMG] I used lots of zipties, swing has metal frame.
