Backyard chickens are great at eating bugs in the garden (and providing free eggs in return), but they need a place that will keep them safe from predatory animals. For this you’ll need a chicken coop.
This chicken coop is a great example as it won’t cost you a lot of money to build. It’s made from recycled pallets which you can get for free or at a very low cost.
The best part is that you don’t have to dismantle to the pallets. You can easily join them together as long as the pallets are of the same size. It’s easy to build and cost effective.
What do you think of this chicken coop? Is there any more room for improvement?
You’ll need these materials:
- 1/2″ Plywood
- 18″ Square Glass
- Bolts, Hex Nuts and Washers
- Waterproof Wood Glue
- Cement Blocks
- Door Handles
- Magnet Latches
And these tools:
- Jig Saw
- Power Drill
