    Yes, sell them! they can bring more than you think as a trucker I would sell them all the time. back in the late 80's a 48" 4 way pallet would bring 5 bucks in good shape....

    Lol. I don't have access to enough of them to sell, I just want to repurpose the ones that I do stumble across. I'm too cheap to buy them anyway :lol:

    Thats really cool.
    I have a question though. A couple of years ago I had about 20 given to me, and had planned to build something with them. But I found it so hard to get them apart that I gave up on it entirely. What's the best way to get pallets apart?

    I second Trent. Your coop is awesome, but how do you get those darn pallets apart? My "help" (DH) isn't so willing because he says they are awful to break down.
