    put a trap door in my chicken tractor, now we are having a problem with how to lower and raise it. its a very simple design, would post a pix but don't know how. anyway its 10x20 and just drops down to a stop that aligns it with the bottom part of the ramp (the stairway to heaven). anyone with a simular setup, how do you do this?

    got me a cold beer, went to the shop, surfed the pix of chicken coops. I think we have solved the problem. will take a little rework but think it will be fine. Wife thinks so also, so maybe it will work.
