    Sunny side up :)
    Nice. We use pallets around here a lot too. Sometimes we are lucky and find huge pallets with large sheets of plywood nailed on them. We also made a 6 house breeding coop setup with boards from a torn down house that someone wanted removed on craigslist. Free (or almost free) is awesome!
