I'm so pleased with myself!

I just finished the install of a two-seater nest box that extends out of the coop, allowing more room inside the coop... needless to say, this is so that I can get more chickens!

The new box set into the wall (note: I did add a hinged lid later)

It wasn't as hard as I feared... now I plan to do the same for the smaller coop I have. Oh - and I found two eggs in there this afternoon... so it's a hit!

Thanks!

Considering that there were few if any square edges to the original coop, the nest box was an improvement, and heck - at this point it might be the strongest part!
