Freecycled pallet coop

  1. Benousheh
    Discarded pallets, corrugated iron roof, floorboards and bookshelves. All found in the street, with friends or online.
    About $100 (Australian) on hardware supplies and the help of some good friends!

    The roosting bar was an old curtain rail (I think)

    A bit of decking oil to protect it from the rain...

    Needed some timber on the roof until we secured it

    Loving the roost. They march up every night and sleep. The only new things we bought were the nesting boxes.
