An Old Swing Set Frame Turned Into A DIY Chicken Coop...


Here’s a really clever DIY project. Turning an old swing set frame, either broken or no longer used by the kids into an A frame chicken coop. They’ve simply used the frame of the old swing set, attached some supporting metal around the base to hold it all in shape, attached some corrugated iron sheeting to one end, some capping on the roof, added a door, and attached some chicken wire…

The yellow metal runners are being added to help give the entire structure more support…

The swing I just bought could be turned into this for the chickens or ducks.
