Although my hubby is not a "chicken person" he is really great about building stuff from scratch so I told him my requirements and he improvised. My favorite features include the removable roosting stick and nesting boxes and big side door so I can clean out the house easily. What I would change? I would reduce the number of nesting boxes to two - one on top of the other so that they can't get on top and poop. We currently have 9 chickens who are more than comfortable in their cottage.
