Build a Chicken Coop

In the past few years we have observed a noticeable increase in the number of customers searching our surplus window lot for affordable windows to install into their chicken coops. According to THIS article in the New York Times backyard chicken coops are springing up all over the place, even on the roof tops and in gardens of city dwellers. The owners of the Millwork Outlet, Dan and Darryl Drllevich were raised on a small farm in Kent, WA where they raised cows, sheep, chickens and other farm animals. Both brothers have fond memories of caring for their animals and love talking to our customers about their chicken coop, barn and farmyard projects. With the increasing requests for chicken coop products we started searching for items that can help our customers build attractive and affordable chicken coops. We recently stumbled upon about 20 large shipping crates measuring 48″ x 48″ x 96″ that will make a great structure for chicken coops. Rather than spending a fortune on lumber, these shipping crates are already built to last. A saws-all, chicken wire, paint and some carefully planned holes will turn these crates into cute chicken coops in no time. I searched the internet for pictures of chicken coops built from shipping crates and found the one below. These coops are built from smaller shipping crates, but the idea is similar. These already complete shipping crates are sold for $70 but as the seller warns the shipping from California would cost more than the coop. We are selling our shipping crates for only $45. For pictures and details please visit our surplus website HERE. Come get them today and you’ll be on your way to collecting great tasting eggs for your morning omelet!
