Outhouse to Chicken House

This is the view from our screen porch in the Spring of 2007. We had to come up with a chicken house and quick -- we had only two days notice. A neighbor of ours had this little building which was designed to look like an outhouse but which they actually used as a chicken coop for small bantams. We bought it and hauled it to our place in the back of our pickup. We then built a small lean-to on the side so the chicken could go out even if it was raining. You can't see it but all of this is surrounded by 3' chicken wire.

Today, the chickens live in a nice big chicken house with two windows, nesting boxes, bales of straw in the corner which they like to play on and plenty of high roosts. But at first they lived in this little house.
