    I finally got moved and now it is time to start building my coop:). I am going to have 6 layers. I have decided that my coop will 4'x8' and my run at least 6'x10' maybe bigger.
    I wonder if there will be any plywood on sale for black friday :lol: now just waiting on the boss lady to give me the picture of what it is supose to "some what" look like. If you call me I won't hear the phone over the table saw.;)

    Keep an eye on Craigslist for free, recycled lumber.

    Some of the big box stores sell lumber for half or less that is split or warped. The chickens don't care.

    The Lowe's near me has a corner with pallets of wood everyone avoids. It works perfectly for chicken coops.
