from one of the Vietnam type movies, either platoon or apocalypse now. in one scene someone gets stuck with the job of emptying out the latrines , basicaly a wooden porta potty. anyway, there was a door on the side, hinged that just flipped up and the pot was pulled out of there. So for some reason I was looking at the coop and thinking and it struck me...cut out a door all along the bottom of one side so i can flip it up, hook it and just sweep the bedding right outside where I can scoop it up for the compost pile. easier than trying to get it out the regular door.
