    is there anyone who built the nestboxes that extend out that can tell me how they supported them and what wood you built them with?

    I extend my nesting box out so it can be accessed from outisde the coop. I used 2 x 3's to construct the box and built it into the frame of the coop. If you go to my web site
    http://www.capecodpiper.com
    Click on links, scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the photo of the chicken coop, you can see my entire construction process to date. There are some photos of the nesting box before and after it is covered in there.
