    I'm loving the idea of pallet coops and have seen some really great creations! This is the start of my first pallet project, just a little duck run for when my Muscovy lays this spring.. I think it's turning out really cool!

    Anyone have pics of a large coop made out of pallets? Ones that you would never think were made from pallets?

    That is lovely! I like it!

    You may want to use 1/2 inch hardware cloth (instead of chicken wire or welded wire) and apron it out at the bottom for safety.

    Thank you! Yes I will definitely have to apron it, I learned that the hard way last year :(
