My friend, Monnie Peters, is giving away a chicken house. Yes, this is a chicken HOUSE, not a coop. It’s a small building that was designed and built by contractor-builder Jack Sweeney eight years ago. Sadly, Jack passed away a few years back, but his deluxe chicken house lives on.

The house has been lived in by three flocks of chickens, even in the winter without much heat. The dimensions are 6′ x 8′, and the height is about 7′. It’s insulated, electrified (mostly to keep the water from freezing), has a door and storm door, and features an operating casement window with screens.

The house also has a special chicken door, four nesting boxes, and two roost poles. It fits up to ten chickens, and possibly more when little.

This is no ordinary chicken coop. Your chickens will love this deluxe chicken house with all its amenities. Your chickens will not only be well-housed, but they’ll also be happy.

The building is free, but you will need to arrange for equipment to move it. Keep in mind that because this is a real building, it’s heavy. To move it, you’ll probably need a forklift to lift it onto a flat trailer.

The chicken house is located at 1425 Neahtawanta Road. For more info or to grab this chicken house while it’s available, contact Monnie Peters at (231) 632-5030, or email mgpeters@acegroup.cc.
