Has any one ever used the 6 foot x 6 foot white fence panels at lowes (or home depot) for the walls of your coop? I'm wondering if those would work and how to do it.

Yup!!! Hurricane Ike hit us and when it was all over we went around picking up old privacy fence that it knocked down, we got a bunch of it free!!!! and that is what my coop is made of, infact for the door of the coop, we took a privacy fence gate door and just attached it to the coop, so when we close the coop, we just use the hinge locks it had....the whole coop is made from that...

We Left an opened top area, they roost behind and leveled with this so they can see the whole yard, and for air, it has wire across the front for safety
