    Yes. I put the coop up.There is a door that opens to collect eggs and clean the nests. When you close it there is a open space.I dont know how to close that up without also sealing the door. Hoping someone has this coop and has an idea

    Maybe if you can post a photo of your box and a link to the coop you bought your problem would be more clear?

    Yes, as there should be no space. The lid should fit flush with the egg box part. Is this a new coop?

    A lot of those coops are poorly designed and built. Could be something as simple as it is not sitting perfectly flat so it is out of whack.

    Do you accidentally have the white trim pieces on the lid of the nest box installed upside down?
