..the cheap & cheerful way for 4+ bantams!
Take one old apple crate & halve. Collect oddments of tin, wood, chicken wire, a bolt & a hinge. Next step..trim the facade & add a tin roof only fastening it a 1/4 of the way.
Two homemade wire hooks are then added at the back so the roof can be lifted to check for eggs, then another hook is added to a post to secure it from above; then it won’t land on my head a second time!
The front hatch acts as a ramp by day & at night they can locked safely away from Quolls & feral cats! Because there’s no shady trees nearby we elevated the coup with a base of an old doggie trampoline we found at the tip shop. The girls love hiding under there away from harms way.
Well that was a satisfying few hours work!!!
