    Does anyone have a good set of plans they can share for a coop with a rollout from the nest boxes for easy outside collection? I have seen pictures of coops for sale where that feature was offered but buying a coop is too expensive.

    I second this request:) I have a hen that is eating eggs. She is a VERY nice hen so I don't want to pull her from the breeding program but would like to keep her from the eggs. I do collect 2-3 times a day and she beats me to them:(
