My husband and I have been wanting laying hens for a while now, but we have house and car repairs that are more important. We've been trying to think of very inexpensive ways to build a hen house. We would probably get four or five hens. First off, is there a house we could build for under $50 that would fit four or five hens? We have some chicken wire and wood so we could create a fence to surround whatever we use. Now the idea I have, I got from a neighbor, but he may not have laying hens. I noticed he has a tent. Would a camper's tent be a suitable hen house? We could add milk crates or something of the sort for bedding/laying. Our whole yard is fenced in.
