    I think 99.99999% of people, o.k. nearly everyone else, would look at this and think "crisps!". I looked at it and went "That would make fabulous nest boxes!" and went back to take pics of it. I think it's a great design.

    What do you all think?

    (Yes, I spend way too much time looking at and/or thinking about coops at the moment! lol)

    @CrealCritter @Beekissed you like making things...

    Oh, yeah, I'd be thinking nest boxes too! I love how roomy they'd be, though I'd cut it down so it wasn't taller than my roosts. Maybe cut it in half and put more feet on the top half so they match. Not a bad design at all....gets me thinkin'. :pop

    I know I wouldn't be thinking "crisps" because we call 'em chips over across the pond. ;):D

    I was thinking "both" when I saw the title. Yes, I'll take chips with my chicken!

    :lol: Yeah, my first though was some type of chicken -- new way of cooking.

    BUT -- I do see the nesting influence. Here we have mostly carboard when those displays are used.
