How to Transform a Dog Kennel into a Chicken Coop

Place the new chicken coop (former dog house) on the outside of the existing chain link fence.

Raise the chicken coop off the ground with cinder blocks or other material. Cut a precision hole in the chain link fencing and position it correctly near the new chicken coop with a flexible back door that opens and closes, and chickens have seamless access to their outside run.

Modify the dog house for chickens with new doors that are smaller, a slanted roof, nesting boxes, a roost, and a manure box.

Include a ramp for chicken entry into the outside run.

Add feed and waterers inside the coop.

Secure locks on all doors.
