To prepare, husband has been building this little get up on the garage side of our house. It's the shadiest part of the yard and nothing grows there since the spot is canopied by a huge Oak tree. I hope the hens like it. The hubs is building nesting boxes as we speak. This whole thing is covered in poultry netting to keep the stray cats and other varmints out. We spent no more than $50 for the whole thing, not bad compared to hen houses selling for hundreds of dollars.
