    I needed to have a new hen box for my new hen. I couldnt put her in with the other hens cause they would peck, but they are fine when in the yard together. So I converted her door into her new box.

    I then added a board to the frame for front support.

    I then started the bottom. I used some deck boards from that build. I then cut two angled boards and added them for bottom support.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    I added a tin roof, and some wire for a peep hole.
