    That's cute and a lot like what I was thinking about.
    Now can you draw me the inside of the coop/nesting part, to give me a different idea from mine, about how to lay it out?

    Awesome![​IMG]
    Certainly looks doable. I am forever getting in the middle of building one and then losing my ideas. I write them down but then lose the paper. Here I can just add this to my favorites and keep checking back as I build!
    Cool![​IMG]
    I'm going to try and start this one this weekend. [​IMG]
    DH and I are finishing up yet another coop this week and I really need more tractors. Chickies are great lawnmowers.

    that is way to cool but what if they slide out or have a door in the the back to collect eggs or clean them out? this turning out to be incredible this is to awsome. the thing is it doesn't look a tractor in my mind it looks like a huge chicken house with two side walk in shed with the nesting boxes on the side for breeding pens . trust me I could bable on all night about what would be cool.

    Tell me the roost is not going to be right over the nesting boxes. If so, watch out below.
