    So i know its not super amazing or anything but not having any carpentering skills or stuff like that, i think i kinda did an ok job. They aren't finished i need to add the door to the second brooder chamber but then it will. Sooo basically what i did was move my brooder from one spot to the other. Before i had a 4x3 brooder and it was under the roosts. Not a good place for that, [​IMG]. Learned from that mistake. So since i have so many hens, well really its not alot but you get the point. With having alot of hens of breeds that go broodie i new i needed more than just one big one. So i took down the old one and made two under the nest boxes. Since that space isnt used why not. [​IMG]
    Thats both of them.
    Heres one already in use. [​IMG] Its the small of the two. I tried to make them the same size and failed LOL.
    Here is the bigger of the two i just need the door on it.

    I'll bet a finer coop in Menifee cannot be found. Nice job. [​IMG]

    I am glad I am not the only one that uses doors like yours. [​IMG] I bought three old large damaged dog carriers for $2 that had perfect doors. Wound up with six nest boxes and three good doors.

    Again nice job, and I'll just bet your little hennies are happy! [​IMG]
