Nothing wrong with that coop, good job and imagination.! If it serves the same purpose and gets the job done, go for it ! Nice job !

That's a perfectly fine chicken coop! Great job!

Our nursery/bantam coop is made from all used materials as well. My parents had given us wood and we had pallets and leftover hardware cloth and chicken wire and 2x4's and we built a coop and run! I think the only things we bought were the hinges:).

My latest coop is called the retirement home for the hens that don't lay much any more. It's the box of a old one ton moving van its great because its all metal so it really secure free of draft in the winter and will never rot. When I get a chance I will take some pics and all the wood and fencing is recycled as well.
