    We added a ramp to the first perch and a gate to hold the pine shavings in when you open the door to the coop. It was making a mess! Also, the gate holds the girls back from charging the door for treats [​IMG]

    We also suspended the feeder off the ground with wire.

    Next upgrade will be adding a tin roof to my nest boxes for a more rustic look...just for fun! [​IMG]
