    hi there, well I found a major flaw with my removable floor,excuse the pun, it's made from a disused pallet, however the slits are slightly larger than some eggs, so I found two this morning, when cleaning that had slipped through the gaps, I gave them the water test, then washed off all the bits that had fallen onto them, live and learn.

    Now that is funny. It is like you are hiding them from yourself. Don't give the girls any ideas. So I had not read about your removable floor. Tell me about it?

    And when you say you did the water test, not sure I remember that either.

    Quote:Well I used a whole pallet as a slide out floor, so i hinged the front of the coop, lift the flap slide out the floor , easy to clean, but also easy to lose eggs under, then the water test, is to find out if an egg is ok to eat, put it water if it floats generally no good, if it sinks it's fine, a bit like witch hunts.[​IMG]
