The nest boxes. Made from driftwood (perch) and scrap lumber from other projects. The bottoms are lined with linoleum and will have straw in them. The back is a hinged lid for access from the storage room, that way the girls can stay warm when we collect eggs in the dead of winter. It gets c-c-c-cold here in Prince Edward Island, Canada.
This shows the back of the nest boxes, with the lid closed, in the storage room.
This is the finished coop. I need to hang the feeder and the waterer. The "girls" arrive Tuesday the 23rd of June 2009. I will add photos of the coop in use when they are old enough to use it.
Hope you enjoyed our little recycling project!
