Barn Pallet Chicken Coop

15K Views
When my daughters asked their dad to buy them more chickens, I never could have imagined him building something so beautiful. Especially for chickens. But this is what my father in law and husband were able to build out of pallets. I absolutely love how it turned out. Now the girls are jealous that the chickens have such a beautiful playhouse.
Time: 3 Weeks Cost: $800 Difficulty: Medium

We started out with 5 solid plywood pallets. Then built a base for the chickens to have some shade.

We also fenced them in a nice large area so they could be free-ish range. We live in the country and raccoons and neighbors dogs could be a problem.

The inside of the chicken coop. The little waterer we are switching out for a 5 gallon bucket. Just haven't had time to get it done yet. There are 4 nesting boxes, but the older chickens like to share 1 box, and the younger 8 chickens share another. Its pretty funny to see them all piled up on top of each other at night.

Another look at the chicken run. We ended up taking out a corner of our pasture for the cows. Then they have tons of grass to roam around in to find bugs, but still are protected from natural predators out here in the country

I still can't believe that they created such a beautiful coop from scratch, with no plans at all!

    Very cute! Is the roost on the right of the door? Also can they get out to free range from inside the coop? Sorry, just trying figure out how they get under the coop and into their run.

      My husbands family did meat chickens when he was growing up. They really liked it. I really like my eggs :)

    How many gallons of barn paint did you end up using for the coop? We're going to take a stab at painting our coop this weekend and it is roughly the same dimensions as yours!
