    I finally got the motivation to get a camera and figure out how to make a youtube video. And it is fun! I am a huge fan of youtube. I hope you enjoy the video. I kind of threw this design together a few years ago thinking it would be temporary, but it has proved to be so simple and easy to operate, and most of all the chickens are happy.

    Interesting. Good for people to view that are thinking about getting chickens.

    You use about the same design I did but I covered mine more across the top and sides. I use some of the same nest boxes you have. I do not have wheels on mine that small and can still move them very well.
    I do not use treated wood because the only one I have is heavy as the dickens. I painted mine to make them last longer. A few are 2 years old and still look new like my red one and my blue/yellow one.

    I agree it is a great project and I like the way you showed everything.
