    Well, I got into the scraps of wood again. This time the kids helped me build them. They were good gofers and holders! LOL We added 13 more nests to the coop. This will take us up to 26 total. I'm pretty much outta scrap wood though as dh burned the old wood piles this spring. I will have to take pictures if anyone wants to see.

    Sorry have been out in the hay field, and haven't had time to look at this site. They are downloading now and I will put them on as soon as they are ready. Thanks for wanting to see. Here is a pic I took early this spring of what the nesting boxes I built earlier in the year look like.

    My hubby built this one when he was a kid!

    Judymae,

    I will be working on my nests this Thursday, do you have any plans/description for how you built them? How did you attach them to the wall?

    Thanks!

    Dreamgirl--I didn't build those. I'm not near good enough to do that. Chickenranchwife did it. Much more talented than me!
