    Hello,

    I'm hoping to salvage as much materials for my coop as I can, was wondering if anyone had experience working with pallets in their coops..
    I need to make it look as non "back woods"[​IMG] [​IMG] as I can.
    [​IMG]
    while I have also salvaged a few 2x4's and a few scraps of plywood too, I'm thinking that the majority of the coop will be made of these
    i also have a few cinder-blocks too.

    ideally the coop will be 4x6x5high..
    any advice will be appreciated!

    Hi MJCooper42. Type in "pallet coop" in the search box and you'll see a lot of examples of coops made out of pallets here on BYC. Some of them are truly eye-popping [​IMG] Congratulations on acquiring such a great resource. [​IMG]

    What's wrong with backwoods? :p That's probably the best word to describe what mine's going to come up looking like....

    Great job finding so many pallets to work with!
