    Here are the pics I used some plans someone on here suggested. It says you can make it out of 1 pallet it took way more then that. 1 Pallet + 5 big peices of wood from home depot (used treated wood for roof $1.59 per peice, 3 of the peices were treated wood) + 1 can white spray paint + 1 Red can of spray paint + Some white primer + Some nails N hard labor. I got the pallet for free from my Dad, was a pain to get the nails out of the boards considering it was put together with a nail gun. Had a little help from my dad to...I kept slitting the wood using a hammer on the nail..so you know what men do...get out the tools THE NAIL GUN! He had it all done within a 30 minutes. so, I cut everything out and got it started then he just nailed it together. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    you could use a shoe box for the nesting and you could put umm wood shavings not cedar though, toxic to the chickens and how many are you planing to get?

    oh and are you going to use the ramp as a door?
    do you have a lock for it?
