    My DW is an elementary teacher and last year she convinced the school to allow her to build a coop and keep chickens at the school. We worked with Goodfood Sandhills, a program to bring gardening into our community, to come up with funding for the project.

    The hen house or coop is 100% pallet wood (minus the roof), and we made the run using grant money.

    Take a minute to check out my article below.

    For some children, this will open their eyes to the real world. My grandchildren were quite taken by what happens in nature, seeing the life of chickens.

    Excellent achievement.

    I love it! I'd love to build one like that with pallet wood. I have tons of pallets already and access to many more. Do you have plans for this? I am rebuilding the the coop that came with the chickens, it is temporary, but would love one like this for permanent.
