    So I have decided to add a second coop to the yard one I can grow out some young ones. Since the first one cost me a arm and a leg I decided to try to build this one with the least amount of money possible while trying to keep it from looking like a pile of junk with chickens in it. So I decided to use a shipping container that I found on Craigslist for $ 30 and I picked up a bunch of wood also from craigslist for free. Today was day one didn't get as much done as i wanted due to rain. I am going to try to make it light weight maybe even sell then for the ones that cant make them!
