    Our Coop!
    When I discovered I wanted chickens, I had no idea the cost involved in making a coop! I made a list of everything I thought I was going to need for a 6x6 coop and headed to Lowe's to get a rough estimate of what the coop build was going to cost. Needless to say I realized building a coop out of new materials was not in the budget!
    I went to the local Boeing Surplus store in my area and bought a 7'6" x 7' bamboo shipping crate. Cost $10! Once we got it home we opened one end and removed the wood shipping racks inside.
    (Pictures with one end removed and partially painted.)
