Thanks :) I reckon you could almost live in it, going to pour a slab for it as well, just to make it easy to clean!
I wouldn't mind building one on the back of a trailer so you can move it around the paddocks ;)

Excellent job Cai. Hopefully your girls will be as impressed with your efforts as they are with mine.

While I didn't build a new one, I moved theirs yesterday, and to my surprise a full quota of eggs in the nesting box this morning for the first time. Image
