    In August we decided to build our coop "Casa De Galingha" ..it did take a couple of months to complete but well worth it. The frame, floor & siding is all pallets. All other materials including roofing, doors and windows were also donated by friends & family.[​IMG]

    Nesting boxes were made with scrap would & old cabinet doors.
