    That looks good, nice and solid. [​IMG] I would think about a thin sheet of plastic of some kind tacked over the nest box top...it looks like water could seep in along that hinge line if you had a good rain. So how will you move it? Drag it with a tractor?? Update w/pics as it gets nearer completion...

    Hi Andrew,
    That rain was badly needed! How many chooks are you going to put in that coup?

    looks good! I love seeing pics in progress, because I am gearing up to make a new one myself and it gives me ideas!
