DH and I were just discussing how to house birds if you want just a few each of several different breeds and I was struck with a wild idea. I can't see why it wouldn't work, but I'm a total novice at chickens, so I thought I'd throw the idea out to the experts on this list. Get an old, non-working chest style freezer, cut a pop door in one side, fill with bedding and voila...one extremely well insulated chicken house. For ventilation, you could prop the lid open a few inches, or cut a vent hole at the top on the side opposite the pop door and rig up a slide to vary the size of the opening. For added warmth in winter, you could just hang an ordinary light bulb inside. So, what do you think. Am I crazy, or will this work?
