    Hi everyone,
    Does anyone have their nest under a poop tray that is accessable from the outside through small doors? I am going to do that and need a picture to show my hb how I want it. A Picture would be great. Thanks Gloria Jean

    Above is a picture of my nesting boxes under my poop board, below is the other side (this was when my coop was a work in progress) which is on the inside of my shed vs outside.

    Unfortunately my 'dutch barn' which this building is was demolished thanks to Storm Sandy:( so I have to rebuild this spring, My plan is to expand my poop board/ roost to run the entire length of the nesting boxes I put in, same design (boxes under poop board access the same as above)

    In a way, I'm happy to rebuild because I will do things differently and get to expand:

    Thanks so much, but mine will be entirely under the tray and will have doors on the outside of the building flat with the siding.. I guess its my own hair brained scheme. When i get it done. I will try to post a pic. Thanks again, Gloria Jean
