I am building my coop and am not sure what to use for siding. I am on a budget so does anyone have any ideas for something cheap but nice looking?

Welcome to BYC @BCRed14 !

Finding used materials can be hard, but that's your best bet for 'cheap'.
Craigslist, Habitat Restore, etc.
Telling us more about your coop, and posting some pics of what you have so far, might help.

I don't have anything really done yet. I am getting the lumber for the framing today. I will check the habitat store. I didn't think of that. Thank you!

We like cedar fence pickets, they are 5" X 6' long, are inexpensive and often on sale. They hold up to weather without being painted, and are resistant to termites. Our coop also has metal siding on 3 sides, we closed it up with the cedar. If we were starting from scratch it would be all wood.

I wish cedar fell under the 'cheap' category.
