    My Coop
    This is the coop my 9 year old son and I have been working on. It has been completly constructed out of used shipping crates. The only things we have had to buy so far are the hinges, handles, latches, poultry wire, and tin ($60 bucks total investment)....
    Framed out the coop is 48"X48"
