Chicken Housing

Ariel view of the chickens part of the yard.



This was an old chest of drawers. Brother cut the drawers and turned them into nesting boxes and ramps. The open side will have double hinged doors for easy access to the eggs and cleaning.


The hole at the back will butt up to this, the coop, which Glenn converted from a very large dog house. They even have a screen door for the very hot summer. In the winter, he'll replace it with a solid door.





Pretty snazzy!
