    I'd like to see some pix of your egg doors so I can get some ideas on how to make my egg door. I want to see how you support the egg box if it is out side.
    Thanks!

    Okay, here goes. I have three coops and three types of egg doors, two on the same coop. Here are the pics-on the original coop, the first pictures, that door is a piece of curved log siding turned upside down.

    Here is a link to pictures of mine.

    If you go down to the interior shot you can see that the nest box is supported from the inside by being screwed into the framing.

    I'm not an experienced carpenter by any stretch of the imagination and had no plans for the coop, but that was how I worked out to do it. There may be a better way, but this way is working for us.

    Slyster-
    I must have missed it; did you ever let us metroplex folks know where your chicken processor was?

    Thanks!

    Since most of the coops I build are for families that have small children I decided to do something a bit more fun with my egg doors. Not what is normally expected behind the door.
