Haunted Chicken Coop
Ann Lero, Kansas
I built my own version of a coop I saw a picture of online. It was called a haunted coop. The walls and windows are crooked to give it a haunted feeling. All the materials used to make the coop are recycled except the wood screws, hinges, and door handle. The lumber came from an old hog barn I helped take down. I took a walk through a nearby wooded area and gathered vine to use in the window, steps and porch of the coop. I also decided to make a swing out of the vine to hang on the porch of the coop. With the leftover lumber I then built a small out house that is actually a feeder!
