    My fiance and I are building a Gilligan's Island themed chicken coop and I was wondering if anybody else had a themed chicken coop. If so, I would love to see pictures.

    That's awesome! I originally suggested a themed coop and I reaally wanted to go with the "famous"(?) Hobbit house looking coop that gets shared all over the internet. Hubby nixed that idea right where it was born. [​IMG] Said it would be tacky looking.

    But then today! He picks out a set of pointy black wrought iron hinges for the back door to the coop and guess what he said when he put them into our shopping cart: "They look right out of Castlevania! I'm going to make a Castlevania coop!" (For those of you who aren't married to a nerd... this is an old game about a vampire hunter and an old medieval gothic style castle).

    So my two year old daughter and I just looked at each other, blinked and kept walking. This isn't over yet...

    I wanted to build mine to look like a KFC restaurant. I just laughed at the thought of a bunch of chickens lining up and walking a ramp into a little KFC. I decided I was more concerned about saving money then my sick sense of humor.

    Hahaha fantastic. We're painting ours white and black and putting an S.S. Minnow sign on it. Gonna make some fake palm trees out of cut up umbrellas and fake bamboo out of pvc pipes. Within our coop budget and hopefully it'll be fun to make and look at. [​IMG]
