Cable Spool Hen House

Turn an old cable spool into durable shelter for your hens.
Do you remember our last inspiration? It was an adorable Hen House with a unique look with complete protection. Today we have something similar but a little bit smaller than last time. One of the contributors of the ‘Instructables’ comes up with a great idea how to reuse an old cable spool. This project involves turning a large cable spool into a pretty nifty dwelling for hens, ducks or for just about any other outdoor small animal! This project is time-consuming, but we think it is worth it ;)

If you're lucky and you get this big cable spool to make a shelter for your outdoor critter don’t forget to let us know how it goes!
