I just found out from the distribution manager where I work that there are quite a few wooden pallets in the warehouse that he wants gone. I went back to check them out and several of them are quite large! They would make a good start for a floor for a coop and I could use some of the others as framing for the sides and roof. I know 'cause I've learned this from other BYC posts! I'm so excited. I've called my son to bring his trailer and pick them up for me. I just love FREE! I'm not so sure DH will be as eggcited as I am, but hey, what's a girl to do? He works outside in the cold all day long, so I may have to wait till warmer weather to start building. But, at least I'll have the materials! Then I can get more chickens, build a brooder house, etc. And the out building that we were talking about converting to either a coop or a hobby room can now be designated as my hobby room! Whoot, Whoot!
