I was offered 6 chickens for free so i decided to go for it and do it on the cheap... so i got some pallets and set to work.

I had to buy some 2x2 batons for the frame work and a reel of mesh, but other than that this has cost me under £250 for EVERYTHING - when you compare that to some of the henhouse/runs pet shops sell its a bargain!

The chickens arrived before i started the build, so they lived in a crate for 4 weeks!

Heres my build pics;

Your coop has everything that I would want in mine. Great access, plenty of run space, concrete base, covered run, nice ramp and cozy shelter. Oh, and best of all, HAPPY girls!!

Cheers, the door going down like that is because i don't intend to close it at night unless its really bad weather (wind/rain/cold) or if i need to open the run or take the roof panels off i can contain the birds inside.
I didn't want it getting stuck up from lack of use or it dropping shut by mistake trapping the birds so i decided to do it drawbridge stylee!

The outside roost might get added too... some form of climbing frame/entertainment! Its main purpose is so the birds can see over the wall and up our sloped garden - again more to see/enjoy.
