Go Ahead & Try to Eat My Eggs Now Roux

So our nesting boxes used to be on the ground. Then our guard dog pups figured out that they could help themselves to an egg buffet. Even raising the nesting boxes a couple of feet off the ground didn't stop the pups who apparently are part squirrel. So yesterday I whipped up this solution. It seats two nesting boxes, enough for a lot of hens. Now the hens are about 4 feet off the ground. As a bonus, it gives the ladies a little bit of shade to hang out in during the hottest part of the day if they want to hang around the coop. I case you're wondering, we open the fencing up every day, and the hens roam free. Sometimes they roam all day, other times they all hang out at the coop; it's probably better that we don't know what's going on in thier tiny minds.
