    My neighbor came over today and said he's got this metal shipping crate that he needs to get rid of soon. It is 8X16 with a metal floor and metal frame on all four sides. I think he said there's a roof too. I was thinking this could be a fantastic coop frame for someone, so I'm putting up some pictures. Please PM me if you're interested.

    Just to clarify - the thing on the flatbed is the base and it is heavy and very sturdy. It would be easy to install a wood floor on top of it. The rest of the frame is upside down in the first 2 pictures. The neighbor has said he will deliver for the price of gas and is willing to work with anyone at getting it off the flatbed and into a space - as long as your yard/area has room for the flatbed to maneuver in.
