    Does anyone have these and do you have pics of them? I was offered some at a nice price, but not sure I know exactly how they work, and hubby wants to see what I am talking about.
    Thanks!

    No, this isnt quite it. They are one row, and all wire. I saw them, but didnt get a good look, as it was getting dark and we were hurrying to get fencing loaded onto my roofrack...

    Quote:Yes! He got them from an egg farm! He said if I leave the door open, the hens can get in and out and they would basically be next boxes. Is that true? Would they work for that?
