Chickens are among the best helpers in the garden. They are excellent at shredding compost. They are also good at plucking weeds, moving mulch, and digging holes in the soil if you need them. But raising chickens does mean some added responsibilities, and foremost among these is keeping them safe from predators.

For this, you need a chicken coop.

The best part is that you don’t have to dismantle 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.
