To grow farm-raised eggs does not always mean you need a huge farm. Building a chicken coop with shipping pallets and planks can be done in a small back yard. We placed our finished coop inside a walk-in dog kennel because we have dogs. This chicken coop project took us about 2 hours: 1 hour for gathering all the materials and tools and 1 hour for cutting, nailing, and clean up. We lined the floor with old roofing shingles that make daily chicken poop clean up easy and quick with the water hose. Don't forget to grab one small hay bale and a bag of starter chicken feed!
