    I built this using 2x4s and pallets/scrap wood. I also bought roofing materials. It's 8x4xabout 9 ft high and cost around $250. I'm a novice builder, and this project presented a lot of...problem solving opportunities. Not much was square etc due to the recycled material but I made it work...

    Drawing up plans for the duck house.

    In drawing up the duck house plans I find I have questions. 🤔 Will a 4' tall back wall be high enough? I know that will limit standing fully upright to clean but with a single slant roof it shouldn't be to bad. ..maybe. The front wall is looking like 6'3" will be my max height. Do you find...

    I thought some of you may be interested in seeing the coop I designed and built using old pallets. I'm petty handy so after looking at too many coop plans to count I decided to design and build my own incorporating the features I wanted for my small flock of 4-7 chickens. For starters, I wanted...

    I live in Minnesota and am working on plans to build my first coop to accommodate 5-6 chickens. My plan is to build a 24 sq.ft. coop, which from what I have read is the advised 4 sq.ft. of coop space per hen. There will also be a 72 sq.ft. attached, covered run for the chickens when they are not...

    My pallet hybrid coop!

    We have gone back and forth with what to do for a different coop for my chickens (we = my husband and I). I was given my chickens in October and went out and bought a prefab.

    Very Low Cost But Tons of Work: Recycled Coop

    UPDATES: As of 2017, my town allows up to 6 chickens per acre. I have scooted the coop over to where the wire run used to be, because my air flow works better in the Summer and Winter. I have wire covered/enclosed another maybe 15' X 32' area on both sides of the greenhouse so the hens can...
