what is the cheapest way to build a chicken coop??


We have used an old metal yard shed, an aluminum truck topper [up off the ground on concrete blocks], even an old dog house [if you have just a couple].
Looks like a Jeff Foxworthy joke, but does the trick.

If you have to build, use 2x2s for wall and 2×4’s for roof framing, then side with corrugated fiberglass roofing panels or cheap steel siding.
