To learn what the Eggmobile is, read the previous blog. The early framework pics are there, too.
Now, we'll see Bob's continued work and the final product!
There are two rows of nests which the chickens enter from the inside, and we access from these doors on the outside. Picking eggs will be much easier and cleaner with this method. In the pic, the bottom door is down; once complete the top door will be able to attach to roof.
C'mon In, my little chickies!.
Here's the nests from the inside and some of the roosts.
Bob is lowering the ramp that allows the hens to go out for fresh air and exercise and just to grub around.
At night the girls head back in, and we'll put the door up to keep out predators.
And here's the final version:
Its a nice yellow as that was the unused paint found in the basement.
Hope the ladies like it. ;)
We'll move the hens in this weekend, pull the eggmobile out to a pasture where the cows have been, '
set up the poultry electric fence, and let them do their thing.
