Dreams of Spring

My plans for spring to save money and be more self-sufficient I will build a chicken coop. Yes your read it right. I´m going to build one myself to show how easy it is and I will share my plans with you. I want to make one of these.
I saw this on BackYardChickens.com. I don´t have the plans for it but I´m going to find myself some pallets and recycle the wood from the pallets to save a LOT of money. I already own the chicken wire. Do any of you know of any coops that have been made with pallets?

I hope to start bee keeping too. Any of you do this and if so how hard is it?

Today has been one of those days where not much has happened. All I can do is dream about spring and all the things I will make and plant. What are you doing in the spring?

  4. I am hoping by spring we will have moved and I can put many of my homesteading plans into practice. Until then it is container gardening and farmers markets for me. Thanks for stopping by!
