Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

I prefer wire over wicker because when my natural grace shows itself and I break eggs their a lot easier to clean.

I made an apron with egg size pockets. The top of the pocket is a little smaller than the bottom to hold the eggs in. I think wire seems more durable to a lot of people smile.png

For what it's worth, I use wire.  An unexpected plus to wire is when I accidentally leave the basket in the run (fortunately without any eggs).  A wire basket is much easier to clean than a woven basket.  I would just use what is convenient and most useful for you.

 

Thanks,

Wire might be easier too clean, allows stray straw, feathers to fall thru.

 

I have a pretty wire basket for whim, and plain plastic bucket......

....and use hoodies and jacket pockets, especially in winter when gathering just a few at a time throughout the freezing days. 

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!!!
