Repurposed Chicken Coop

I used my Father's Day gift (a set of Ryobi cordless tools) to help the kids re-purpose one of the sheds on our property as a chicken coop. We recently purchased a dozen chicks from the local feed store to teach our children about sustainable living and caring for animals. In the spirit of sustainability we removed shelves from our smallest shed; installed a window; built roosts, mounting boards and a chicken door/ramp from scrap lumber from the shed; then installed nesting boxes and fencing. Great project and learning experience! Thanks Ryobi!
