how much trouble will this be? Does anyone have any examples? Our coop has nest boxes but they are too small (probably 9 or 10" square) and possibly too high up. We were only able to put the roost about 6" above the boxes (if that) in order for them to have enough head room (this was a premade coop). If we have to make them bigger anyway, I'd rather make them lower at the same time but since our coop is so small and short I want to be able to collect eggs without going inside it. My coop is on my blog post here, including inside pics: http://lookslikechickenscratch.blogspot.com/2011/06/coop-before-and-after.html eta: the existing roost sticks (which are shown in the before pics) are gone-they were probably just below the height of the nest boxes. We put a new 2 x 4 roost in above where that one was.
