This is what we started with
We had to cut the walls to fit and to create the slant for runoff
Building the nesting boxes
We are trying to recycle EVERYTHING and getting some things given to us
With the economy the way it is right now I know alot of you like myself are looking of ways to save money. Well I have the perfect way to "have my eggs and eat them too" I am like many other Americans out of work but my family wanted fresh eggs so I went about along with my husbands help of figuring a way to build a coop that is both economic and safe. We got several BIG pallets and just went with the flow. We didn't actually have a plan we just figured it out as we went. I am going to post some pictures of the process, now mind you it is still in progress but I will add as we go Hope you find this helpful!
We will be rebuilding the run in the spring we are going to make it taller. I have a red warming light inside and I am getting 2 eggs a day from my 2 oldest hens. I have a rooster in which I DID NOT intend to have he was suppose to be a hen. Oh well I love to hear him crowing in the mornings. Hope someone will be able to use this as an example and maybe even make it better if so please let me know. The boards will be coming off this summer so it will stay cool inside. Happy building!!
