I've been planning and designing a new coop and run for a couple months now. I made up a sheet with a list of all the materials I'll be needing, and have been posting 'wanted' ads on 4 Freecycle groups in my area trying to see how much stuff I can get for free for this project. I've estimated it should take almost a year to get everything and then put it all together. Just in time for next Spring's baby chick season. About a month ago I received a roll of chain link fencing and the posts to go with it from a nice lady freecycler. Plenty of fencing for what I need. Late last night, I scored eight 10 foot long tin roofing panels from another freecycler! That will save me about $150. Add that to the $100 or so I saved on the fencing and this is working out really really well! Now I need some plywood and 2" x 4"s and I'll be mostly set and ready for the building phase.
