Need a chicken coop? The A-frame of an old swing set could be used to build one!
Chickens are great for eating vegetable scraps and insects in your garden, with the added bonus of free, top quality fresh eggs.
But first you need to build a chicken coop that will serve as their home. This is where they will lay their eggs. It will keep them protected from the weather. And it will keep them safe from predators. A chicken coop will also protect your yard, especially your garden from your chickens, as they’ll happily feast on your produce.
This chicken coop made from recycled swing set is great way to start!
You’ll need these materials:
- Iron Sheeting
- Chicken Wire
- 6m length Steel
- A-frame of a Swing Set
- Bolts, Washers and Nuts
- Netting Rings
- Door Frame
And these tools:
