Remodeling, which includes the chicken coop. The 6 hens will be displaced for about 6 weeks.
Have a movable chicken run already, but need temporary housing during the interim, which we
will need to tear down after they get into their new coop. Has anyone tried raised straw housing?
Or are there other temporary structures out there for our Oct./Nov. Pacific Northwest weather.

People have successfully used bales of hay for coops, usually covered with plastic like a hoop house. You could also build a coop out of pallets. This might be a bit cheaper since bales of hay are around $5, and pallets can be had for free - check Craigslist.
