Step 1: Pallet Deconstruction
be safe and use hammer and pry bar to remove pallet boards keep nails in the boards
Step 2: Reconstruct Pallet
use hammer to straighten nails if bent then proceed to connect all four corners so that each corner is nailed and braced against the other to form a square
Step 3: Plant
hopefully the square should be strong enough to hold some dirt and chicken poo for fertilizer. I stacked two squares of pallets but any number would do depending on how much dirt and how high you want it .throw some seed in water then wait
Step 4: Frame for Chicken Wire
same principle as before but instead of nailing side on I nailed them flat to each other with chicken wire sandwiched between boards
Step 5: Happy Chickens
free ranging now make me some eggs
