Let me preempt this by saying I have a plethora of plastic skids. My work has them all the time and I try to find alternative uses for them. We got in some new equipment that came in large crates. So I decided to make a quick meat grow out coop for my bantams today. Here is what I started with. All scavenged items. Some left overs from other projects. Next my helpers came to supervise the project. Decided to cut the skid. Then screwed the wooden plat form to the plastic skid.
