    Oh Is the organic feed chinky[lol I meant chunky] so it stays in the pipe until they need it? Or does the pipe not make a difference what you feed them? Just thought it was interesting!

    What is the egg box looking wood section for on the back? it looks like it is covered with wire on the inside toward the chickens as well. I thought at first it was a coop area, then thought maybe it was a portable next box.......

    Quote:it is a nesting box, but the girls are not due for laying for 2 more months and all they were doing was pooping in the box, so my brother in law sealed it off till then.
