First things first... My goals:
I want a low maintenance easy to clean coop.
Less poop more coop.
I want it to look halfway decent.
I wanted to get a few chickens but don't want to spend much money...
So I employed child labor tactics!
I also saved money by finding most of the wood to build my coop.
The hot spots for finding free pallets include: Paint stores, local hardware stores and home building sites. (our lowes and home depot keep their pallets locked up) I recommend getting permission before nabbing the free wood...
I found a great pallet that was already framed out! Less work for me! It also helped me add a cool feature that every chicken coop should have. More on that later.
