    One thing I forgot to install-
    WiFi.
    It's getting old with the Hens coming into my office so they can surf the net. They never wipe their feet!

    I wish I could name one thing. I ‘completed’ my tractor 6 months ago but I’m still modifying it! It just built in a brooder two weeks ago and I think I’m going to add another ramp this weekend. :idunno

    My coop has hard wired internet so they never lose signal strength... and I'm not kidding. Well it's for me and the coop control and to pipe in music sometimes and view the cameras. Nothing like watching an egg roll down the ramp fresh and shiny... from the machine shop.

    Cup holders! Great idea, that's going on the list... Maybe a few shelves in the run too.

    A CLEAN place to sit! I should hang a folding chair out there, so the birds don't poop on it...

    The shavings leaving the coop and hanging up the door... that happens to us. I keep a golf tee to hold the pop door open. I also use it the clean it ther shavings where they get stuck.
