If there are unusual homes, there are unusual chicken coops too!
But these chicken coops were not built just to be different, they’re also a great way to repurpose or upcycle old washing machines, trampolines, and other scrap materials.
They are also great options for when you want to raise your own backyard chickens, but you can’t build a regular chicken coop. Aside from functionality, these chicken coops look like cute play areas for chicken, adding an interesting decorative feature in your backyard.
Even if you don’t have the budget for new materials, the time or the skills for building, you can still DIY one of these chicken coop ideas.
Is there anyone you know that could also get an idea or two from this list? :)
