Gypsy Wagon from steel garden cart?

topsiebeezelbub(z7 Al)September 9, 2012

Hey creative people, I just had a brainstorm...I saw some gorgeous gypsy wagons made for chickens to live in on a British website...About 6K!! I have one of those steel mesh carts that I never use, and thought AHA! A chicken gypsy wagon! Does it sound do-able? My carpentry skills are minimal. My neighborhood doesn't allow chickens (shhhhh) so I thought if it looked like a child's play house no one would be the wiser. I only want 2 chickens as pets. Any ideas?

I would love to see your inspiration because it sounds intriguing! Grew up on a farm though...you'll need to let the chickens out of the wagon at some point. With a fence around it. Unless you did a high privacy fence...I take it you live in town or a development that has guidelines. May wish to find out the pentalty fee if caught. Just so your aware of what your undertaking...

I'd love to so both your inspiration pic and one of your steel mesh cart.

Chickens definitely need room to roam a bit and then the security of a varmint proof habitat at night - plus a roof to keep that dry.

Keep us up to date on how you do, k?
