Hello, My name is Miguel L. 24 yrs old, just married in June 2017 and have a little one on the way! I got introduce to the whole backyard chicken thing by my parents. We had chickens in Dominican Republic in a small coop and backyard, I do not remember much since I came to the US at the age of 8. But recently I got the urge to have chickens by reading a post on the Art of manliness website and how simple it was to have chickens even in a city backyard(like my parents), And I thought, "Now I want chickens!". I don't have any chickens as of yet but I have plans to build my own chicken coop with recycle wood, mostly pallets due to money constrains. I am going around my city collecting the wood pallets from where ever I can find them in good shape. As soon as I start building them I will post this little adventure towards having chickens. I know that you guys have many articles on chicken coops, I have been reading a lot from here , but if someone can point me to a good chicken coop plan made out of wood pallets I would be very grateful. Anyways thank you for reading this essay of an introduction and thank you for the welcoming.
