Now, forgive me if this looks crude. The picture you are about to see represents 15 minutes worth of thought and actual work. I needed a quick solution to hanging the nest boxes so I could continue moving the chicken tractor. Three and a half 2x4s later…
The boxes are hanging from screws in the upper 2×4. There are tarp straps holding the bases together so they don’t swing in the wind. Everything seems to work fine but it’s suddenly quite a heavy chicken tractor.
I put part of an old tarp between the two nest boxes hoping to offer the hens a little privacy without adding much weight.
So, there you go. There’s still room for feed and water in the shelter and there’s plenty of airflow. I just need to make it a bit lighter. Let me know if you have any ideas.
