Chicken coops from the store can be surprisingly expensive. Save some money by following this Handy Portable Chicken Coop Tutorial. To save even more, try building this chicken coop out of pallets leftover from other projects. This DIY chicken coop is really convenient because it has little doors and a ramp for the chickens to move freely, plus a roof that hinges open for easy access. There’s even a little door that you can open whenever you want to collect the eggs. Not only will you be satisfied with this coop, but your chickens will definitely love their cozy new home, too!

My partner and I are adopting battery farm hens to try give them the better life they deserve. This is a great idea for us to make for them and we could have a few of them around the land with different hens in itit looks like it has great protection from foxes as well?

Oh my goodness! This is just the project that I have been looking for. I was recently pricing up chicken coop kits at my local hardware store and they were several hundred dollars (ouch!) I knew that I couldn't afford one. This might just be my solution though. I have loads of old pallets hanging around and a hubby with tools (and know-how.) I think that this will be my next spring mission. I can't wait for my chickens!
