Your backyard Chook family will feel right at home in this comfortable and safe Pallet Chicken Coop. According to the Blogger Shannon – “It’s completely made from pallets and recycled wood from an old building and playground,”
The linoleum flooring was given to her by a friend, and the paint was a mis-tint from Lowe’s that cost $5.
On the inside, she made the perch ladder with material found at her husband’s golf course. A door at one end opens for raking the bedding and cleaning … and of course, egg collecting!
Keeping chickens in your backyard can be a great idea. Not only are they terrific pets, but they’re wonderful recycling machines, too.
Chickens convert kitchen scraps, garden weeds and grubs into fresh eggs and chook poo, which is an excellent fertilizer.
However, if you want to keep chooks, you must look after their welfare and give them shelter and protection. Your backyard should be fenced and you’ll need a chook house of some description. You don’t have to build one from scratch, just convert a disused cubby into a palace!
