Re-Clutter your Life (#Terraintober Immersion marker Project) Part 23 – Chicken Coop

This Part 23 of a series of a fair few posts, Part 1 (link here) gives an overview and the philosophy applied to the series – cheap, simple and fun.

Today I have been running around like a headless, chicken so let us get straight into it, you will mainly need coffee stirrers cut lengthwise separating each in three lengths.

Create three walls and roof I make mine about 15mm high and 30mm wide.
Attached some neeting with superglue, but what is it (see below)
The material is referred to as Tulle Fabric (I had some at home)
Glue the pieces and add some detail (supporting beams, you can glue these carefully to create strength), also some detail for a door. Now put it on the side.
Cut out some pieces of nylon tiling like this, about 30 by 30 mm, with walls being about 15mm tall or something like that,
Glue them together to form this shape
Clad the whole piece with the coffee stirrers and put it on some short stilts (some planks to stop exit/entry) and a ladder
I added a few pieces to symbolise where the eggs would be collected.
Detailing on the front and roof (nylon tiles) and some chickens from the lead mountain (not required(
Detailing on the back (also I add some fine sand on top of the roof to create a roof felt structure.
I painted all before I glued on the cage. Alternatively if you do not have the fabric to make the cage, you can make yours like this.
Really cool seeing the Hens in there.
Have to say that this one and one in Part 21 (Charcoal Burner) are my favourites.

Spend is still £24.42 in total as we just used coffee stirrers. Ok, the chicken and the fabric would have cost some cash if I did not have it at home so it is debatable and in that case the budget is blown, however I am leeting myself off the hook this this time.

Tomorrow, we will do something else…

/ Hope that was of some interest
