    Barn style Coop with 100% covered run, complete with 4 large nesting boxes, fully insulated with repurposed pallet walls. Our 7 chickens are loving it!

    Nice looking coop, I like the barn style. Just wondering about the use of chicken wire for your run, any plans to replace that with welded wire to keep out some of those Alaskan-sized predators? Thanks for sharing your coop with all of us!

    "Great Coop. Please give us more!"

    This is a great-looking coop - and the run has nice style, as well. Since it's made from pallets, I'm thinking you built it yourself, but it looks professional. Can you please give us some pointers on building this beautiful coop?

      Thank you so much, yes my handyman husband built it using a free plan design I found online from MyOutdoorPlans.com its 4ft by 8ft and the Pallet idea was mine- we had a few lying around. He fully insulated the walls and then covered them with the pallets. we used a 9x10 piece of linoleum from Lowes for the floor :) we have a fenced in back yard where the coop is for extra security from predators. Being in Alaska we have all sorts of critters that come around our woods.

    You both did a great job. I felt guilty giving the article so low a rating when the coop is so awesome! Could you possibly add the link to the free plans? Details on how to make a coop like yours are are the only things missing for your article.
