Can I make a rabbit hutch as a makeshift chicken coop?

anyone know a way? I have only you. Do you have a ramp or something, so they can run can?

Totally! That is what I am now with my two rescue chickens. I'm not sure what you look like. Mine is a basic grid box on wooden legs. At one end it has a wooden crate. I know I did nothing special except a piece of sheet metal over the top. I use a chick waterer and a single cut-off Buckets wired to the side for food.

Nest box is simply a box-like cubby that chickens instinctively when they stop laying eggs. They are typically mounted on the floor and away in the Coop, of drafts. There are no fixed rules on its structural details, as long as they meet some basic requirements.

The bottom of the box with 2-3 inches should lined by straw. This is a comfortable nest-like cushion for the chickens and a soft "landing place for the eggs. The straw should be replaced every few days so be sure the fields are such that they are made easily accessible. Often a series of nesting boxes is mounted along one wall of the coop, and a trap door is provided so that the boxes can be accessed from outside Coop for easy cleaning and daily collection of eggs.

The actual size the pit should be 12-15 cm in all directions. They can be easily made from plywood or ¾ "thick boards are constructed. Mounted nesting boxes for more than 18 inches above the floor of the coop, head of staff should be provided. It is also better if there is a landing area or deck just before the speakers. In this way, the chickens hop can on this deck before entering the boxes. When the roof of the boxes on the Internet from inside the coop, it's a good idea to it obliquely, which is the chicken from the use That prevent the beginning of the nest boxes for sleeping area. However, if it is a bar and can seat more than the top of the nest boxes, they use the perch as They instinctively prefer the higher location.

The usual recommendation is to provide a nest box for every four female chickens. This seems like it might not be enough, but experience has shown is that this be sufficient. Often more than one chicken a nest box, share and of course all the birds are not at the same time. Be You are not surprised if they all decide to use only one box and ignore the others. I'm not sure why, but it is quite common.
