    My Coop
    Building a coop for under 50 bucks is pretty simple and there a loads of ways to go about it. I would suggest that you start hunting for scrap material around town, at freinds and family's homes and maybe at the dump. Once youve got yourself some material to build a coop out of, start to ask the question; how can I build a coop from all this junk.

    find a large doghouse with a hinged roof on clearance add a roosting bar and nesting box from scrap stuff.
    But the run might cost you some money too.

    x2 See the Purina coop threads on BYC - if you find some 2 x 4s and some plywood you are good to go (plus something for the roof).

    x2 Very good idea - make sure roof lifts as Sally says
