My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Melanie Jones!!!

Melanie Jones (#4211) has received a certificate of achievement in Make it Easy for earning an Intermediate Level Carp-hen-try Merit Badge!

“I built my first chicken coop!!! I drove around town looking for scrap wood, pallets, and siding. I ended up with two shelves from my local Aldi supermarket, two pallets from a local business, and some tin roofing from an old farm house. It took a Friday and a Saturday, but the end result was spectacular!


Altogether, I spent $20 and some change on this chicken coop, including the chickens and feed! Now I have two happy chicks and one happy farmgirl!”

  1. Winnie Nielsen says:

    Congratulations Melanie, your chicken coop looks great! And I am so impressed at how you cleverly gathered materials for only $20. Now that is Farmgirl genius!!

  2. Cindi says:

    That’s perfect! I’m so impressed with your gathering skills ~ it takes a sharp eye to find that stuff some times. Congratulations!! Love the sign on the side as well

  3. ReBecca says:

    You are the essence of farm-girl! Using and making do with what you have. I and very envious of your chickens, I live in a ‘burb’ that doesn’t allow ‘livestock’ or clotheslines.
