I am new to this site (and chicken keeping), so I thought I'd post the coop my partner and I made for our two hens. We only spent about thirty dollars on the chicken wire and latches, the wood is from pallets and old projects, as are the shingles. I can't give you a layout because the idea came straight from our noggins. We built it with two things in mind- keeping the chickens cool in the scorching Miami heat, and providing them shelter from sun and bad weather. So far it has done both very well, and my little flock is happy and healthy! I almost feel silly posting these pictures after seeing the other coops posted- but I feel this is a nice little set up for someone looking to have a small flock with minimal space and a minimal budget. I also like the idea of being able to expand the side opposite the nest area easily if I want a few more chickies!
