    hello looking for ideas and pictures of coops built from pallets. I have a source I can get plenty of pallets. If I use pallets it would be really cheap.

    Hey how are you I don't have pics but just make sure it's sealed up tight but with ventilation above the chickens so they don't get a draft,also make sure the roof is pitched so no water or snow gets in.I would use OSB on the inside or outside or both depending on how secure and warm you want it,also if you want to insulate it and save money you can use newspapers,that's what I used it works great! You can also cut a pop door out and a small
    opening for a window to let in light,just a couple of suggestions.
