    When we decided to begin raising chickens we wanted to build with re-purposed fence materiel and pallets due to cost involved.
    I started with a few old fence panels and a couple of pallets. I broke them down the best I could and came up with this design.

    Below is the completed frame for my design at the time. I placed the fencing materials on the front sides and top.
