    Hello All,

    I am currently working on the plans for our coop, to be built this spring. I have done alot of research and am thankful for all of the fellow chicken addicts out there sharing their advice. I was looking for some personal preferences and opinions on using 5 gallon buckets for nesting places. I was thinking they would be great as they can be cleaned easily, and replaced easily if needed. Also poop boards? Thanks in advance for your advice!

    Ive found that the darker Buckets work better and need to be a foot off the ground. Poop boards I dont know much about ive always used linoleum rolled out under perches easy to wash off with waterhose
