    Looks like a nice set-up. The feeder from the outside is a good idea, no more dodging and weaving through hungry chickens waiting for their breakfast!

    Looks great! I love the feeder! I think I'll swipe that for our CR summer tractor! Thanks! [​IMG]

    I noticed that you have the same problem as us with the bedding getting into the waterers. We got a plastic crate that lifted it a few inches above the bedding, (we layer our bedding pretty deep) so the clean out isn't as difficult! Just thought I'd share! [​IMG]

    You could utilize wasted space in the small outside pen by adding perches:) They would love that, like a jungle gym for exercise and shade or sun bathing.
