Pallet Chicken Coop

  • 8 pallets

  • medium

  • 8h

  • $15

Small chicken coops can start at over $200.00 for a boring, generic cage. Why pay that when you could build this Pallet Chicken Coop for as little as $15 bucks, and customize it to your liking! I did things a little backward - I adopted the chicks before I built the pen, so I had to make a coop in a hurry.

Here's how I built my Pallet Chicken Coop:

I started with eight extra-long pallets (1 x 2 meter) that I got from work. I built the main body of the coop and all of the lower fencings from these extra-long pallets. I sunk the pallets on the sides of the coop walls 18" to anchor the coop. I also did this to keep the coop height manageable. I built two doors that can be swung open to allow access to the nesting area. I also made a sliding door, a ramp, and a perch for the chickens to sit on. I enclosed the entire pen with wire, built a pallet/lumber door, and nesting boxes.
