    I like it. Almost bought one that looked similar at a fur/feather swap last summer. Well done. :D

    Thanks! It is working out really well. The hens have been using it regularly and our eggs are much less poopy.:D

    I'm redoing mine soon, planning on some wire freezer shelves topped with wired-on milk crates with hay and a board wired across the bottom of the opening...I think, anyway. Better ideas? I've had lousy luck wtih solid floors...VERY dirty eggs!

    Metal scrapyards have an amazing amount of these wire shelves in excellent shape and great price by the pound...they're good for young chicks to start going up to a perch with, too.
