    I was remembering how some of the campers I looked at had a long drawer that slid out from under the bed in the front being the width of the camper. That got me thinking about designing a nest drawer for a coop where I could just slide it out to collect eggs and easier access to clean the nesting material out and replace it.

    Has anyone thought of that or already have it. I would like to see pictures of it if you already have that setup.

    I actually have one of these drawer things laying around....you've got my head thinking of how I could integrate that into my coop.

    Might work......as long as there wasn't a chicken in the nest when you open drawer.

    I let mine out in the afternoons after I get the eggs.
