Making A Chicken Coop Out Of Old Pallets...

Here’s a really nice (and cheap) chicken house made out of 7 unused wood pallets. It uses 3 wood pallets bolted together to form the floor structure, and another 4 to form most of the walls. In addition, plywood is then used to finish & enclose the coop. The entire coop is raised off the ground allowing the chickens to also scratch around under their new home. The end result is a really nice, low cost, pretty large chicken coop to house your ladies in…

Here you can see how the floor structure has been bolted to the feet…

Although this looks great on the surface, you have to make sure the source of your pallets wasn’t anything with toxins in it. Otherwise, you’re basically poisoning your chickens
