Yesterdays post talked about a few of the different styles of chicken coops, and today I want to talk about how to build a chicken coop frugally.
Here are a few of my idea, please leave comments with your own ideas.
Dog food, Jasmine, and Power Ranger were our first three chickens and their coop was a plastic dog house.
Our second chicken coop was made from a neighbors old fence that they were tearing down. For the rest of the supplies it only cost us $50-$75.
Habitat for Humanity-ReStore
This chicken coop was built from supplies found at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store.
Most of the time you can find wood pallets for free. Pull the wood apart for use, or even connect the pallets to make three sides of your structure and cover the sides with plywood and add a roof.
Classifieds & Craigslist
Check the classifieds for used sheds, coops, or even lumber.
Here is one coop that is listed in my local classifieds for just $100
Yesterday's post had a few creative ideas like using the back of a car or little tykes play house. I'm sure there are tons of other ideas you could come up with.
I know there are more ideas out there, leave a comment!
