I've been throwing pen idea around (portable) and saw this pen today for sale at a local feed store. It has a couple design problems (like having the bird sleep OVER the laying bucket) but it also had some pretty cool features I thought I would share... Hope these pics turned out, a friend took them with the phone. The green is astroturf or whatever they call it these days. The thngs hanging down are PVC pipe one a feeder one with a drip water system. Looking down at the top, which is a board. The cross pieces are perches, but they lead up to over the bucket used for nest box. Not crazy about that. How you collect the eggs out of the back. There's a little opening in the wire, with a little string that pulls up the green pad when you open it!
