Here is the original post & story: http://www.backyardchickens.com/t/701645/found-a-chicken-on-the-highway-help
We build a cheap cheap cheap coop out of some pallets, culled plywood, cinder blocks, chicken wire, 2x2's, and corrugated tin. What do you think?! Please let me know if there are any modifications or improvements that need to be made! I should say that we plan to add a netted ceiling onto the pen, a front onto the coop, and add two 5G buckets for nesting boxes . The front, I think, will be a single piece of plywood with an approx. 1.5' x 1.5' hole for the chickens to get in/out, and the whole thing will be hinged at the bottom so us human-folk can get in/out.
I didn't notice that we had an egg in the coop until I was uploading these pictures! So surprised! So excited!
