After purchasing some chickens along with a small coop from a moving friend I began planning a coop that was somewhat small but still I could walk in for easy cleaning and managing. Having some mobility issues, I needed a coop that I did not have to bend over or reach out over a large distance very much.I think the best way to describe my coop is to compare it to the size and shape of an outhouse. Adding a large window in the door helped to set the record straight! lol! We used an extra large pallet for the flour and halfway up two sides and smaller pallets for the upper areas along with the back end. After placing the large pallet on 4 leveled blocks we then put a sheet of plywood down screwing it on top of the floor pallet. Then, we attached the other pallets on up. We covered the outside with plywood and gave it a great look with some fence boards I had hanging around and used as siding. A old used window in the door gives the chickens great morning light. My brother was the actual builder so my pictures are really the best way for me to show it in the different stages. We were able to position the pallets in such a way that they already had great places to attach the nesting boxes and wooden perching areas.
