    This is my second coop I turned a shed into a coop and this is the one I built from scratch. The coop is 5'x5'x6' tall it is made from shippng boxes 2 and pine wood pallets. All materials were free except the screws,less than $7 for them.First I built the frame from the shipping boxes and runners from the pallets . I then covered that in the 6" wide boards form the pallets. It took 1 day to break down the pallets and the boxes and 1 day to reassemble. The shingles and hinges all were from things I had around home. As you can see It has a hinged top for cleaning and egg collection. I will add windows soon so the kids can look out and for warmth in winter the vent at the top has a plexi cover and screen for the summer. I hope this was helpful when you build yours. wood free shingles free screws 7 bucks the feeling you have when you build your first coop ...priceless.....





    This is what I used and now to clean up the mess before the DW gets home ....

    Looks like these little guys are loving thier new coop

    This is a very cute idea for a few chickens. Do you have problems with rain going through the screen ventilation at the top of the coop?
