    Someone on here had a brooder built on the floor, with roosts and next boxes above. I'm interested in maximum use of space for my next coop, and need ideas. Thanks!

    here you can see the brooder cages-on top I have a poop tray the grownups hop on and roost it-not lay eggs on though-I have a kitchen cuboard on the wall right next to that caging-if you look real close you can see it???

    another brooder set up in back-they roost on top of that too:)

    Sorry about the snow, but this is our external nestbox. Built as an escape from foxes but they turned it into a nestbox and now never lay in the coop!

    Chickenboy, it looks like a little gnome house! Incidentally, that's the same color I just stained my new coop.
