    Hi, I have a nice cedar shed that I have split in two and have two pens inside for my chickens. Just put up roosts and they all love it. The walls are wood except the front which is chainlink.

    I need to rather quickly put up some nice, sturdy nesting boxes. These will be on two sides (wood). I would LIKE to use Home Depot type buckets as that has worked well for me in the past, but I have always hooked them onto chain link. Now I need to hook them onto wood. I am NO carpenter!!!! So, if any of you use buckets, and can show me a good way to support a row or two of them on the wall, with pics please, boy oh boy would I be grateful!!!!! Thank you!

    I will share pics when done!

    You don't have to really nail or screw them down. You can put a ledge on from side to keep from sliding, that way you can just pick it right up and hose it off when it gets dirt. Her is a pic that are not home depot buckets...but it works in the same way [​IMG]

    Thanks! Silly question, but is there a board underneath those?
