    Well I am needing lots of ideas to build a banty coop. Hoping for cheap, easy, and easy enough for a kid to build.

    I made some small coops out of pallets. One on the bottom covered with plywood for the base. The sides were pitched together. Looks like a triangle put together. I took the runners of one side to make almost a lap siding look (covers the spaces fairly good.)Put shingles over the top, caulk and paint and was done. I put runs on the ends also made out of one by ones and chicken wire. I almost forgot plywood front and back with door for cleaning and chicken door. Three pallets were free and one sheet of plywood was about 12.00. I just used some paint and shingles that I had around the house. I would say 30.00 total counting shingles hinges and all. Good luck! jeff
