Check out this reader-built haunted chicken coop and then try out your own.
Ann Lero, Kansas I built my own version of a coop I saw a picture of online. It was called a haunted chicken 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 outhouse that is actually a feeder!
Do you have a cool chicken coop? We’d love to see it!
