    Im building a chicken tractor this march and have been researching ideas and came across this guy that builds these nest boxes. they seem really nice. He also does custom builds. Im looking at him building me a 2 hole outside nest box. let me know what you guys think. Hes a cabinet builder so they should be build pretty well. I would have to seal the outside and then i was planning on doing tounge and groove siding on the coop but dont know how you would do siding on the nest box. any ideas?

    I would skip the expense of the two doors and simply hinge the roof.
