    My Dad was nice enough to build me a new roost for my girls and a nesting box - someday they might start laying. He used an old cupboard for the nesting box and left over 2x4's for the roost. I also have a dog warming pad next to it to warm their little toes.

    Very nice set-up! I like the door to the nest box, nice and wide for easy clean-up.
