    OK, let's see if this works!! My husband made the nest boxes like the plan in Living with Chickens For easier clean-out, he hinged it (see pics). It's really cool!

    That looks great. I also like what he did with the hardware cloth on the windows. I never thought about having them hinged. I thought it had to be on the outside. We forgot and put the trim on yesterday and were unsure what to do! Now I have another project for my hubby!!

    Nice nest boxes.....I also love the great windows with nice screening over them. I'm getting super ideas for our coop!

    Thank you!! The windows were another "invention"!! The windows are double-hung (got them for near-free!)--with his hinged and latched "frames", I can get to the windows to open them and to clean them. I'm glad you like them!
