    Ive been sittin on an idea lately . My dad works construction and they throw away lots of scrap lumber and I got him to ask his boss if I canhave the scrap lumber he said yes. Ive been thinking I could take the lumber im not gonna use on my coop , to set back and this spring start building chicken tractors or little chicken "houses" and sell them on craigslist.com. Do yall think this would be worth the work or not ? [​IMG]

    I have been looking at doing the same thing with used pallets from a warehouse and turning them into small coops or dog houses. At the cost of chicken coops your main issue will be making them light enough that you don't need to higher a friend to help load and unload.

    A 4x4 coop with an external nestbox goes anywhere from $300 to $500 out here.
