    nothing fancy about the design! but I did put a slanted board on the top to stop them roosting on the top.
     
  6. [​IMG]Here is a picture of my nest boxes, I used left over 1' x 4' pieces of OSB I got from work. It has a slanted roof so the chickens can't poop all over the roof, I also added a 3" strip to the top of the opening to make it darker and cozier for the hens. In my chicken tractor I used a plastic cat litter pail which I nailed to a board so it would not tip over.

    So many great ideas. I'm planning my new coop and will have to incorporate some of these ideas into my design. [​IMG]

    This thread is awesome. I'm just getting started with chickens (still in research mode) and will set aside a few cat litter buckets!
