    I will post pictures later but i have a question i need to ask...
    I'm moving into a house for four years and I'm planning to have chickens. I'm trying to build a coop from a old farm building, complete with an old run that I wish to expand. I'm trying to go the cheapest route possible seeing as it is not a permanent station for me here. I've seen alot of coops and expansions done with wooden pallets and was thinking that i would prob go this route. does anyone have any suggestions as to design and internal builds?

    collect a bunch of used pallets first.

    they come in different sizes, so AFTER you get a big stack of pallets, see what sizes you got, and then design.
