Okey dokey, so I'm thinking about building an A frame tractor.. Shhh, don't tell the hubby.
*angel*

I wanted to build the A-frame with the sheet metal shelter at the end. Nothing fancy, something simple and easy to build and use.

How do nestboxes and roosts work in an A-frame tractor with the shelter at the end? I've seen the A-frames with the shelter across the top, but they look a bit more complicated to make. In many tractors designs I've seen the nestboxes on top, in the corner, but I think this would lead to hens roosting in the box.

You could always build them across the bottom.. That way you could fit in 2 or 3 (depending on how big your tractor is).

Just make sure they roof is sloped so they dont sleep on top on them, and build the roost far enough away that you wont be scraping poop off every morning.
