In which I will attempt to note our progress and results making a coop using plans from My Pet Chicken. My son works at a nursery and had access to pallets. My husband has some building skills and I really want a coop! Day one: Broke apart my first pallet. Wasn't too bad. Only split one board Have a bad backache now, but vacuuming the house can give me a backache so that's not too surprising. I'm not sure how many of the boards will be useable. Will post pictures as work progresses.
