In The New Yorker, Susan Orleans wrote about her experience raising chickens in upstate New York. Her article explained the raising popularity of chickens as pets, and mentioned this chicken coop hacked from IKEA items. Can you guess which IKEA pieces have been used? Answers and more info below the jump.

The chicken coop was made with IKEA's Mydal bunk bed, Trofast storage unit with shallow drawers, Vika Oleby legs, and Gorm bottle rack. See more of the chicken coop hack on IKEA Hacker.
