Recycled project 2

I did some more reconstruction today. It's all those fiddly little bits that require patience.

Here you can see the nesting shelf better. Not sure if I'll build a ladder or just let them fly up.

And with a fresh lick of paint! Of course it won't all be painted, but I had to cover over the hideous baby-blue the cot was previously. My daughter informed me she wanted a rainbow coloured chicken house, but as much as I'd like to make her happy - I've only got one colour can of paint!

Another days work I think, and it'll be ready to get some new wood attached to make the run.


  1. Looking good Chris! Can I order one for us too please? We have an old dog kennel but it is starting to fall apart!
    Can't wait to see the end result!

  2. Sorry typo there it should have said, 'we have an old dog kennel as our current chook house, but it is starting to fall apart'
    Oh dear I think I need a cup of tea

  3. Funnily enough, I thought you were talking about the chook house (aka dog kennel). ;)

    I'm making mine out of a cot so it's not so strange to think a chook house can be made out of almost anything.

    Taking a bit of R&R at the moment because I'm fighting off a throat infection. Darn inconvenient it is too. Today was going to be my first day back at it.

    Ah well, I better enjoy the rest while I can!

  4. I cant wait to see the finished project. Cheers M

  5. Thanks for your comment muzzy. I can't wait for it to be completed either. I'm impatient to have chickens in already. ;)
