Chicken Coop

Daddy was working with a fencing contractor a few weeks ago and brought home six pallets.  These things are awesome because they are big and sturdy, but also have already served a purpose and are looking to fulfil another need.  So what did we convert these fence pallets into??  A chicken coop (well almost, it isn't done quite yet)!!

It's more like a chicken palace!!  Not only will they have lots of space inside, but they will be able to roam free during the day while we are around. 
My hope is to be done this weekend and to get a few local laying hens soon after.  Then we will be raising (lots of) meat chicks this summer, to butcher and freeze for the colder months.
Exciting new adventures!
