We are about to begin working on a pallet coop! My husband brought home some HUGE pallets for me (probably 6ft by 7 or 8ft) and we want to use them as the walls, etc. I have a few questions.. Floor or no floor? If no floor, which I understand is best for deep litter method type situations, are there extra precautions to take to make the coop more sturdy? How closed-in should it be? DH wants to leave it open/not board it up, but I feel it would be safest and most comfortable for them if it was closed in and just had a window for ventilation on each wall. We live in Central Texas. It gets VERY hot in the summer and while my chickens will only be in the coop at night for the most part, I don't want to cook them in there! I imagine they will need a window fan to push some circulation through in the hotter months. Any tips for making it quite sturdy? We are trying to do this as inexpensively as possible so it would be best if we could work with what wood we have rather than going out and buying a bunch of new materials, but I understand we will probably need to buy a few things.
