    I will probably use intact pallets for an 8x8 coop. Will I need to frame it out or will the pallets act as their own frame. And for the Whovians we plan on making it look like the TARDIS.

    You won't need to frame it because you'll have a strong support from the pallets. Although you will most likely use nails for your pallet slats be sure to use wood screws when you attach your pallets to one another and secure them together with an L bracket. This will ensure everything stays solid. My son would love the Dr. Who aspect of your coop :)
