this is our first attempt at a A frame coop, it was made out of cedar that hubby cut from our property and had milled, and pallets we got free and broke down to make the slats for the shelter. We later built the 2nd one from all cedar cut from our property. Milling it cost us 26 cents a foot so not alot invested other than the wire. I don't have a picture of the first one complete but you get the idea. The sides were covered with slats off of old pallets.
