    I would love to see some pictures of the inside of anyone's coop showing the location and type of nesting boxes and roosting poles. I need some good ideas for mine. My coop is 12' X 12'. (a converted shead) Thank You.

    I am glad you asked .. I am looking for good ones too. I was thinking of the same size only I have to build it.
    Not sure hubby will let me use part of his big shed.. not sure it would work anyway.

    The coop I built is 4x8, and this is a photo of the inside before the pine shavings were added and the lodgers moved in.

    The nest box is a rear roll-away type, installed through the wall.

    There is a people door on the other 4 ft side (from where the picture is taken), with a window in it, and a window on the same side as the nest box, near the short wall, to the left out of picture frame.

    Thanks for the pics. I am also building the rear roll away type of nesting boxes. I never thought about putting them thru the wall. Makes great access to the eggs from outside. Good idea. I will probably do the same. Thanks!
