Hey there. I will be building a coop using pallets as the framework very soon.  I didn't like the idea of having to take the pallets apart, and then reusing the wood, too much work. I wanted something that used the pallets as they were. Here is the site I used to help give me an idea of what to do. This site shows a guy actually building an out building for larger animals, but it has step by step instructions, with pictures, and can definitely be scaled down. He does have a link on there that shows how he made a coop, but I like the instructions and pics for the larger building more. Hope this helps!

My Pet Chicken sells a set of plans for $15.

If that's too much, maybe you can reverse engineer it from the pictures.

"But you probably knew that already" isn't something you should have to say to me for a long time.  I'm new at this.  Keep telling me what to do until I get annoyed and change the sig.

LOVE that because you can use the pallets whole.
