    Hi,

    I have searched the posts, looking for detailed designs for a large chicken coop made of recycled wooden pallets. Maybe it's me, but I couldn't find any. Does anyone have any detailed plans to make a LARGE coop with wooden pallets? I am an artist and window cleaner by trade. Definitely not a builder, but can follow plans. I need something big enough for 30 chickens. They are free range, so it just needs to be a place for them to roost at night and lay their eggs.

    Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks!

    You need to plan on 90-120sq ft...minimum. So maybe do a 12X12 (4x4 pallets...3 going each way...3 for floor...). I did a 8X4 FT pallet coop. Just do a search for "pallet coop time" to see some of the pics.....
