Well, after getting the garden "laid by" till spring, I HAD to find something else to occupy my mind. So, after Babygirl said she wanted me to get some more chickens, I put the old brain cells to work.

Had a lot of old pallets, window sashes, wire and treated fence boards, accumilated.....so I went to work. The total out of pocket expense for the coop was less than $10 and for the whole project the cost was less than $70 (Pressure treated fence post, used and usable, are hard to come by).Constuction time.......5 days.

NOW, I gotta find something else to occupy my mind.....maybe a pallet greenhouse or window sash coldframes.

Hi, Boggy,

That is a very cute chicken house.  Show Baby Girl the site www.feathersite.com and see what kind of chickens she picks to be the new residents!  Their photos are great but the site is a little awkward to get around in.  Once you find the pictures it is a breeze.

Thanks, Gail.....Kool site. Put a shortcut to it on my desktop. Have decided on the hens, already. Gonna have Dominiques (brown eggers and dual purpose). Babygirl's teacher, from school, has given her a half grown roo. It's a cross between an Ameraucana and an EE (supposedly).
