Coop with nest on a long drawer

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I was remembering how some of the campers I looked at had a long drawer that slid out from under the bed in the front being the width of the camper. That got me thinking about designing a nest drawer for a coop where I could just slide it out to collect eggs and easier access to clean the nesting material out and replace it.

 

Has anyone thought of that or already have it. I would like to see pictures of it if you already have that setup.

I actually have one of these drawer things laying around....you've got my head thinking of how I could integrate that into my coop.

Might work......as long as there wasn't a chicken in the nest when you open drawer.

Great article on VENTILATION, one of THE MOST IMPORTANT aspects of coop design.

Fantastic treatise to help decide how much SPACE your chickens need.

 

Chicken math is not just 'addition'...but also should include Division, Multiplication and especially Subtraction!!!

"Make every effort to understand your chicken's biology and the environment that supports it."

I let mine out in the afternoons after I get the eggs.
