Pumpkins made out of 2X4's...
I saw this tutorial for 2X4 Pumpkins at
Sassy Sanctuary and just had to make them too.

I have been having trouble with my hens kicking all of the bedding out of the nesting box resulting in cracked and broken eggs. The solution was to make a stand for my nesting box. The hope is that the only reason to jump up and enter the nesting box is to lay an egg, and not empty the box of all the bedding. With the help of my Uncle Peter as my personal carpenter this is what he came up with, and I love it!

|This is what it looked like when we placed the nesting box on the stand...Perfect!|
