I'd bought an Amish Style chicken coop with nesting boxes on the front. I've got 6 chickens and 2 sets of 4 nesting boxes. Obviously I've got too many boxes. I was thinking of converting one half/side of the nesting box area to a feeder or feeder and waterer. Have any of you done this? Any design thoughts on it? Any, you're crazy to do that because ...?
Right now I've got a waterer on wood block at the side of the coop and a feeder hanging near it from the ceiling. I'd prefer to use the extra nesting box space for that.
