Make a chicken coop using scraps easily found around the farm or at the tip. Fencing mesh, flexible tree prunings, mud, straw and tin. This chicken coop uses very basic weaving skills and earth building techniques. Very easy for those who prefer to avoid hammers, nails and corners!
Step 1: Gather the materials
The frame is built from flexible tree prunings and fencing mesh. I used wisteria prunings, but any kinds of branches with a little flexibility will do. The fencing mesh came from the scrap metal pile. It came in two lengths of 60 cm high x 1.5m wide. Posts were already attached to the fencing mesh, but posts or star pickets could be attached following the building of the frame.
