Christine and I are thinking of making a coop for the summer out of free, easily picked up pallets. If the walls are just pallets turned upright, and theyre 4x4, we'd need four pallets for each wall (plus boards to attach them to each other), plus two for the front, and a 4x8 plywood panel to attach a door. We'd been tallking about attaching HWC all over that to keep the preds out. My question is this. If they're in that at night, would stapling a tarp pver the back half of it cut down on enough wind so they'd be able to sleep there in the fall? We're getting the birds (color rangers) Sept 3, so they get butchered 9-11 weeks later. Snow shouldn't be an issue that early. My goal is to make a coop that is inexpensive (free is good!) and usable for more than one batch of meat birds. If necessary, we can attach 4x8 panels of plywood or something to the outside to block the wind, but if it's not necessary, I'd rather not go to that kind of expense. Ideas? Feedback?
