    I have 4 hens, right now (springtime weather) I'm averaging 22-24 eggs a week. I live in Salt Lake City, Utah. Thanks for the comment!

    Nice work. Well designed. A tip:
    If you use strips of lath to tack down your tarp it will last a lot longer. The movement of the tarp wears it out, and if it is tacked down tight it won't shred in the wind.

    Yeah, these two tarps barely survived the winter. They were Harbor Freight $4 specials - the grommets on the bottom edge (which I staked down) ripped out in the wind, but at least they lasted as long as they did! Thanks for the tip!

    Oh to be a chicken roosting in this mansion. Love the use of redwood and pavers to keep everything safe and rot-free.
