We will be making hen houses using old wooden pallets and hopefully getting 12 or more chickens, hopefully more. We have about 9 pallets collected now, and we know where to get plenty more. Wooden pallets are an excellent recycled building material.
They would be chopped up at the dump and made into mulch, but I don't think this kind of wood mulch is very healthy for gardens. I would rather have beautiful chicken coops.I will post pictures of them soon.I hope.
