Also can a dog house work for a house for the birds? I have a dog house in a run made for rabbits, I want to elevate the dog house up and hinge the roof. So I can open it for eggs. Also do they need to have wire on the bottom of the run? Here is a rough sketch of what I want to do. All sides would be covered in wire. The wire run is only 3 1/2-4 ft tall, so the dog house will only be about 2 1/2 feet off the ground.
