I am looking to build a chicken coop or transform something into one. i don't really want to spend hundreds of dollars on materials to build one. plus i have no idea on how to build one

Could I use a childrens play house? If so, what would I do to make it into a chicken coop?

What would I do to a small shed to make it into a chicken coop?

Help please!!

Bolt welded wire over any window, make something to put over the winder ( like wood) to cover them when its nasty out, and add a latch to the door. Anything can be made into a coop. I've seen a kids play house used for 3 hens before.

I'm planning on converting a dog house into a coop. The back of it has a hinge already, so I can have access to the eggs and clean it out more easily. All I have to do is add a roost, nesting box, and attached run. Mabey some ventilation holes, too.
